The Patuxent River Naval Air Museum is hosting our Second semi-monthly MEET THE AIRPLANE! event on 23 February 2013 from 1200-1500. Come to the Museum and get to know the Airplanes on the flightline and inside (because it is cold out there…).  Our focus airplane this month is the mock-up of the Northrop Grumman X-47A Pegasus, the predecessor to the Navy’s current demonstrator aircraft, known as the X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System, which is making news throughout the Navy and around the world. 

The Museum will have Active Duty Military personnel there to answer your questions on this aircraft and others around the flightline.  Make your own unmanned vehicle and demonstrate how it flies.  (OK it is a paper airplane but it is unmanned). 

Join the exclusive FOD Club; find FOD (aka Foreign Objects that Damage aircraft) in and around the Museum; get your FOD Club Card stamped for additional savings at the Flightline Gift Shop

In the Conference Room, Hank Caruso will be on-hand to demonstrate how to draw aircraft.   During the MEET THE AIRPLANE!  another drawing for a remarqued Hank Caruso Aerocature© print will be pulled.   These tickets and Aerocature© prints are available at the Museum Gift Store anytime you can come by, you do not have to wait to purchase those.   Oh by the way, the Museum’s Flightline Gift Shop has the largest collection of aviation themed merchandise in the So MD area.  50/50 drawings will be held for a couple additional lucky winners for the day.  Food is sponsored by Days Off Catering. 

Mark your calendars to come Rain or Shine to the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum on 23 February 2013 to MEET THE AIRPLANE!
