After the hopeful fly-over and updates, get some lunch, then we’ll head over to Pier 2 to re-imagine the 16 B-25s being hoisted onto the USS Hornet CV-8 that left for the secret mission to Japan on April 1, 1942.

Admission to the museum will be the normal $7 for adults and free for kids 12 and under.  DONATIONS to help pay for the FLY-OVER will be appreciated.  “LOOK UP – PAY A BUCK” will augment sponsor donations.  We must reimburse the fuel costs which are estimated to be almost $9000.
