Florence Wings & Wheels 2017

Rolling in and lifting off

A record 138 classic cars roared into the Florence Municipal Airport on Saturday, July 1, as the annual Wings & Wheels showcase was held to benefit the Florence-Siuslaw Lions Club. From vintage Model Ts to 1950s era hot rods and fire trucks to small aircraft, hundreds of visitors lined the airport taxiway to thrill at the spectacular display of the precision engineering and artistic design of history's most memorable automotive and aeronautic feats. The piece de resistance was the World War II SBD Dauntless, an American Navy scout plane and dive bomber that zoomed into Florence. Two lucky raffle ticket winners were able to take the Dauntless on a journey into the skies. Next door, Oregon Coast Military Museum celebrated its second anniversary with an open house, raffles and Smokin’ Pops Carolina Bar-B-Que food cart.
