Pangborn’s Festival of Flight
August 6, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Pangborn Airport and the City of East Wenatchee presents “Pangborn’s Festival of Flight” (formerly known as “Aviation Days”). This is a FREE, family friendly event that features East Wenatchee’s Aviation History of being the landing site of the first, non-stop, transPacific flight. Clyde Pangborn & Hugh Herndon flew Miss Veedol from Misawa, Japan and crash landed in the bluffs above East Wenatchee on October 5, 1931. There will be fun activities, drawings, food vendors, face painting and even a Japanese Taiko drum band. Miss Veedol, and other aircraft, will be on display and for a fee you can take a helicopter ride. In addition to all the fun Japanese and aviation activities, the Commemorative Air Force will once again be at Pangborn Airport with “Sentimental Journey”, a B-17.
