The Commemorative Air Force Airpower Museum in Midland, TX has a mission to educate. A visit to this special museum will teach you the complete story of World War II aviation. Through their impressive exhibits and educational programs, the memory of the men and women who built and flew the historic aircraft of this way is preserved.
Being that this museum is all about celebrating history, it makes the perfect setting for the Mustang Stampede that will be taking place August 23, 2014. The Mustang has captured the hearts of drivers for nearly 40 years. This attractive car was first introduced inside the Ford Pavilion at the New York World’s Fair on April 17, 1964 and it went on sale at Ford dealers that same day. Over the years the Mustang has seen new shapes, curves, colors and features but has always remained a popular treasure no matter how much it changed.
At this stampede and car show you can show off your own ride or just take in the beauty of the many that will be shown off that day. If you want to have your own Mustang judged, you can pay to park inside the main hangar or outside. Judging starts right at 11am and awards will be presented at 2:30. This show is sure to bring the best out from the woodworks so don’t miss it! Your ticket also grants you admission into the museum so it will be a day of seeing some amazing mustangs, learning about airplane history and seeing the spectacular B-29 Fifi.
