“This is the 11th annual celebration of aviation,” said Gordon Page, Founder and President of the Spirit of Flight Center.  “This year we are at a new location in Westminster.  We are excited to show the local community the world class collection, and to have a day of fun with family and friends,” Page went on to say.
