Classic wheels roll under vintage aircraft at SD Air & Space Museum
Wings and wheels combine for a South Dakota Air & Space Museum fundraising event.
The museum will host its third annual Menholt Auto Group Wings & Wheels benefit car show Saturday, Sept. 14.
The show gives people an opportunity to park classic cars, motorcycles and specialty vehicles next to – and in some cases beneath – rater vintage military aircraft.
While participants pay $20 in a registration fee, the show is free for spectators. All proceeds benefit the museum.
The Wings & Wheels show serves as the primary fundraiser for the museum.
Several other events will take place inside the museum during the car show. A scale model car show hosted by Black Hills Scale Modelers will run throughout the day in Gallery 3, and will include a make-&-take model table for children and young adults. The South Dakota Military History Forum will hold its monthly presentation in Gallery 1 starting at 9 a.m.
The show coincides with Box Elder’s Salute to Ellsworth festivities, also taking place Saturday from 1 p.m. through 7 p.m. at the Box Elder City Hall.
