HONOLULU — Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor’s Remote-Control Biggest Little Airshow returns Aug. 16 and 17.
Guests will be able to experience all the excitement aviation has to offer with over 100 aircraft featured — both real and remote control models — “candy bombings” over historic Ford Island Runway for the kids, hands-on modeling stations, Hangar 79 Tours to see the aircraft, exhibits, and Restoration Shop, the P-40 Flying Tigers Exhibit, helicopters, jets and aircraft displays in the 85,000-square-foot battle scarred hangar. Free concerts will happen each day at noon. There will be food, drinks, retail and entertainment booths and exhibits.
For two days guests can enjoy the opening act performed by talented local performers, Mainland pilots from the Academy of Model Aeronautics, and remote control pilots from Japan.
Airshow pilots will fly their massive remote controlled 1 to 5 scale planes in the skies above the museum. There’ll be remote control aircraft in the air and on static display, including, jets, helicopters, F-22s, warbirds, B-17s, P-38s, Corsairs, OV-10s and more.
Visitors can also enjoy free tours of Hangar 79, which still bears the bullet holes of the December 7, 1941, attack. Inside, guests will see helicopters, fighter planes, and the Lt. Ted Shealy Restoration Shop–the 1941 machine shop, which is busy restoring the museum’s aircraft. They’ll also get up close and personal with an F-14 Tomcat, F-15 Eagle, F-86s, P-40, MiG-15, F-111, and the Museum’s “MiG Alley” and Flying Tigers Exhibits.
Admission to the airshow is $5 per person (including entry to Hangar 79), $15 per family (limit 6 entries per family), free with Museum admission and free to Museum Members.
