Experience aviation during Seattle’s Great Depression through the crooners of the era, 1930s eats, and a tour of the visiting P-26 Peashooter. Prohibition is over, so lighten up for Fred Astaire’s "Flying Down to Rio" film screening and a special talk with Night Witch author SJ McCormack about historic character research. Visit living history characters Amelia Earhart and Ellen Church, then fly in style with a tip-to-tail tour of the Model 80-A.
