Santa Claus will fly into the Frontiers of Flight Museum on Sunday, December 15—just two days before the 110th anniversary of the Wright brothers’ flights at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina! The fun begins at 2:00 p.m. and continues till 5:00 p.m. with cookies, treats, and activities including “Kitty Hawk” coloring pagers and building paper helicopters.
The Lakewood Presbyterian Varsity Chorus will be joining us to present a Victorian Christmas.
Have your picture taken with Santa Claus for $5.00, and visit with “Orville Wright” as he explains how he and his brother Wilbur flew the first airplane on December 17, 1903.
The day also features a book signing by Museum Director Bruce Bleakley, whose latest book, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, chronicles how the airport has become a global aeronautical hub for international passenger and cargo traffic as well as an extraordinary economic engine for the Metroplex during its forty-year history.
Copies of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport are available in the Museum Store, and make a great holiday present for an aviation enthusiast!
Special activities free for members or with paid admission.
