Established in 1996 by Apollo 8 astronaut Major General William Anders, the Heritage Flight Museum was created as an organization dedicated to honoring and preserving the contributions made by military aircraft and the crews that operated them. Today the museum is run by Anders with two of his sons and operated by a dedicated and passionate team of staff and volunteers.
The museum gives guests the opportunity to get an up-close look at vintage aircraft and historic artifacts. Unlike most aviation museums, most of the Historic Flight Museum’s aircraft are fully maintained and frequently flown for demonstration flights by Anders (who still logs over 300+ flight hours a year on top of his 8,000+ hours in the military) and two of his sons. These are aircraft that played pivotal roles in the training and operation of aviation crews throughout multiple wars, including an A-1 Skyraider used to assist rescue efforts in Vietnam and a P-51 Mustang, a fighter that was frequently used in WWII and the Korean War. Perhaps one of the more unassuming aircraft in the collection, the Interstate Cadet, holds a fascinating history of being airborne and shot at during the attack on Pearl Harbor.
It takes a lot of hard work to keep these historic aircraft in proper flying condition, and our active maintenance staff operates on the planes all within the museum; allowing guests the rare chance to see what makes these warbirds tick.
In participation with the Skagit Farm to Pint FEST, the Heritage Flight Museum is offering a FREE Heritage Flight Museum pint glass in celebration of Skagit Beer Week. To score your new glass all you need to do is come by the museum with your Skagit Farm to Pint passport. That’s it, really! Then be sure to come back to the museum on Saturday March 30 for Skagit Beer Week’s “Farm to Pint FEST” celebration, benefiting Viva Farms. The event will be happening at the Heritage Flight Museum and will feature beers and bites from multiple local breweries and restaurants. The museum is located at an active airport, so you never know what interesting aircraft you’ll get to see with each visit!
Museum hours are Wednesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Admission is $12 per adult, $10 for seniors, $5 for children (age 5-17) and $5 for military.

The 2019 Skagit Beer Week kicks off with the Skagit Farm to Pint Run for Beer organized by the The Brewery Running Series! The run will be held at the Port of Skagit. Registration includes a pint glass and a ticket to fill that pint after the race!
The Brewery Running Series was started in Washington by Tonio Tello in 2016, with it’s first full year of events in 2017, the Brewery Running Series events are 5k-ish, fun-run courses that all start and end at local Washington breweries, primarily in the Seattle area at this time. We welcome all runners, walkers, joggers, and spectators that are interested in enjoying the great sights/streetscape around Seattle, WA and the great craft beer that our breweries have to offer. All of our participants complete a 5k course nearby each brewery. Afterwards, everyone hangs out, drinks beer, and enjoys local live music!
Be active, have fun, give back! In addition to pairing some exercise and good beer, a portion of all proceeds go back to local non-profits!
The Brewery Running Series started in Minneapolis in 2012 by Nate Herrington and Morgan Jappe. They wanted to combine their favorite things – being active, drinking beer, and supporting their community. Turns out, a few thousand other locals share those same interests across the Country! A few years and tens of thousands of beers and miles later, they decided to branch out.
