Win Big, Enter Now!
Wings of the North depends on folks like you to support our efforts to excite, inform and inspire people about what we all love: AVIATION! By purchasing a ticket (or a dozen?), you are not only putting yourself in the running for great prizes, but you are also keeping aloft Wings of the North as the premier flying museum of Minnesota. We really appreciate that! Our grand prize this year is a 1941 Piper J5-A that is currently undergoing a major refresh with new coverings and a fresh coat of paint so that it will look as it did the day it rolled out of the factory. This follows another love of ours: bringing historical airplanes back to good as new! We’ll have updates on the plane’s progress but expect to view our sparkling “new” prize in May with the drawing for this final prize slated for September 18th, 2021.

These two images are of a plane owned by Danny Smith. This is very close to what our Piper will look like with its new paint job, made to look as it was 80 years ago. Thanks for the use of your pictures Danny, that’s a fine-looking airplane you have there! Images of our plane will be coming soon.
