Replica Of The Vietnam Memorial Wall

The Collings Foundation also received a great welcome by our FBO facility in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Key Air Twin Cities (ANE) earlier this year.  Aviation enthusiasts in the Midwest were able to experience these historic war birds firsthand. 

Most recently, Key Air Twin Cities sponsored “Discover Aviation Days” – a local aviation event held at the Anoka County-Blaine Airport – by donating 200 gallons of Avgas for the North American T-6 flyovers.  The draw for this year’s event was the Replica Of The Vietnam Memorial Wall.  Estimated attendance of the weekend event was 13,000 and over 900 attended the Saturday Evening Hangar Dance.

The EAA signed up over 40 kids during the aviation days weekend to go on “Young Eagles” free introduction flights for children 8-17 years old.  Key Air is honored to play a role in providing future generations the opportunity to relive history and pay tribute to the veterans of World War II.
