Everett goes to the theater

June 9, 2017 by  

Residents in Everett are looking forward to the Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum’s Pacific Theater Day. The event combines educational lectures with vehicle demonstrations for an interactive history lesson.

The Pacific Theater is renowned for the importance of aircraft in the battles fought there. The museum will offer a flying demonstration of several of the planes active in the Pacific to demonstrate their capabilities and what made them so important. Airplanes present for the event include the Japanese Zero, the Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat, the Curtiss P-40C Tomahawk, and the B-25J Mitchell bomber. The airshow will last approximately two hours.

The day will also feature vehicle demonstrations of the M41A Sherman tank and the White M3A1 Half-Track Personnel Carrier as well as an Australian 17 Pounder Mk I Anti-tank Gun. In addition to the demonstrations there will be an educational lecture on the various pieces of machinery on display and their uses in the Pacific Theater. The ticket price also includes entry to the museum, where visitors can find flyers and booklets with more information about these items.

Pacific Theater Day will take place on June 24 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum, located at 3407 109th St. Tickets cost $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and military, and $10 for children aged 6 – 17.
