SHEBOYGAN FALLS – After a three-year hiatus, the popular Wings and Wheels event will return to the Sheboygan County Memorial Airport on Sunday, June 18.
The free Father’s Day event, which is sponsored by Sheboygan EAA Chapter 766, will feature vintage and modern aircraft, classic cars, antique tractors, model trains, vintage boats and other displays.
Guests will also have the opportunity to view the airport’s newly-constructed terminal and visit the Wisconsin Aviation Heritage Center, where they can see a 1941 North Central Airlines DC-3 being renovated.
The day will begin with a pancake breakfast from 7-11 a.m. at the Heritage Center building. Proceeds from the breakfast will be used to support EAA Chapter 766 scholarships and other aviation-related programs.
In addition to the breakfast, six local food trucks will be serving food from 10 a.m. until the end of the day. The Dairy Lane Farm Heritage Preservation Association will also have water and soda available.
After taking a stroll through aviation history, guests will have a chance to take a flight over the local area, as airplane rides will be available for a fee.
The Aviation Heritage Center of Wisconsin was founded by EAA Chapter 766 and a group of volunteers in 2005. The Center’s mission is to “foster knowledge in science, technology, engineering and math through the world of aviation.”
The Center is located at the Sheboygan County Memorial Airport, N6193 Resource Drive in Sheboygan Falls. For more information, visit ahcw.org.
