WOTN Aircraft at AirVenture

Wings of the North will be showing off two of our aircraft at the 2015 AirVenture at Oshkosh.  Look for both the Bush Stearman and Sierra Sue II.  We'll be sharing space with our good friends from AirCorps Aviation - the craftsmen who restored both airplanes.  Come and say hello! Rumor has it they will arrive on Suday, Jul 19 at around 16:30.

New Web Site!!

Welcome to the new and improved Wings of the North web site.  With all of the activity around new airplanes and a new museum, we thought it was time for a new web site.  Our goal is to provide much more content than we were able to do before.  We certainly hope you enjoy the site.  Use the comments to let us know how we're doing.

As we say good bye to another Air Expo, we keep in our hearts our very special VIPs and all those who have risked their lives so that we can live ours. We also send a
HUGE thank you to our volunteers, who run around in the heat and sun, who work their tails off and help make our show what it is. To our pilots who came and gave us a great show - you guys and gals were phenomenal. Smoke On! To our sponsors - Thank you for helping us to show our guests and the community how very important it is that we keep these planes and stories alive. And to our Guests, thank you for coming out and showing your support. You show us all how to be a kid again and soak in the history and excitement that surrounds us. THANK YOU! See you all at Air Expo 2016!!! Stay tuned....
