August 31, 2017: A great way to end the season

The last night of the season featured “all cars,” and we had a great variety, ranging from antique model Ts to a Tesla. Several planes took off and landed, much to the delight of our youngest visitors. Thanks to everyone who turned out for Wings & Wheels this year. We enjoyed seeing you!

August 24, 2017: Italian cars and a whole lot more

So far, we are four for four in August. Yet another beautiful summer evening. It was Italian night, but… in addition to Ferraris, we saw an antique hearse, fire trucks from the Stow Fire Department (an accident down the road hit an electrical pole, which affected the electricity for Nancy’s at the Airfield cafe), hang gliders, and a sky-writing plane flying over the air field. Not to mention the three jeeps…one from Russia.

August 17, 2017: German cars on another beautiful evening

August has been kind to Wings & Wheels with a picture-perfect evening that featured German cars. Audis and BMWs joined the usual appearance of Porsches, and we saw many other makes and models from around the world. We also had several planes take off and land, to the delight of our younger attendees.

August 10, 2017: British cars on a sunny day

Despite the chance of rain, the evening opened with lots of sun and a London fire truck to kick things off. Many British cars came out for British night, especially MGs of all ages. More planes took off and landed, and a hang glider circled over the air field. It was definitely another evening of wings and wheels.

August 3, 2017: American cars shone in the sun

August opened with a beautiful, hot night, showcasing very cool American cars. Although hot rods and muscle cars were featured, we saw American cars of all types and ages.  Several planes also took and landed, making this a great night for both wings and wheels.

July 27, 2017: Another washout

July wasn’t much for showing off cars and planes, although it was good for thunderstorms and rain. Fingers crossed, August will be much sunnier!

July 20, 2017: Back on track!

Despite the threat of showers, the rain held off for German night. And wow, did we see a lot of beautiful German cars! As an added bonus, the runway reopened, and pilots from EAA 196 conducted tours of the planes on the runway. It was a great night to get back on track…

July 13, 2017: Washout

Although we managed to miss the rain in June, it caught up with us in July. We had to cancel due to rain. So sad.

July 6, 2017: Vacation week

No Wings & Wheels tonight, as we all enjoy a break for the July 4 holiday.

June 21, 2017: Italian night!

It was four in a row, as the weather cooperated yet again for our summer-long Thursday night event. Italian night brought out the Ferraris, a Maserati, and a Lamborghini. It’s fun just to say the names, let alone see these beautiful cars!

June 15, 2017: German night!

Another perfect summer evening for our first German night of the season. Loved the array of German makes and models, including a Trabant and a VW bus. We also were joined by a fleet of Corvettes and a Model A in its unrestored, original condition.

June 8, 2017: British night!

Spring returned with a cool, cloudy evening, appropriate for British night. However, the rain held off, and we saw many cool British cars, including a Lotus Elise California (one of only 20 that were produced), several mini-Coopers, MGs, and Austin-Healeys. We even had a guest appearance from a helicopter, a welcome participant during the runway repaving!

June 1, 2017: Opening night!

June 1 was a warm, beautiful summer evening! Due to repaving of the runway, we had to shift the layout a bit. Show cars parked up by the restaurant and featured several American makes and models as well as many different cars from around the world. Expect this layout through the end of June. When repaving is completed, we will provide access to the airplanes. You can admire them now through the airfield fence by the restaurant. Looking forward to another great summer!

March, 2017: Kicking off a great season

We have kicked off our planning for the 2017 season. Expect another great year with cool cars, fun planes, great food, and a wonderful community vibe. Mark your calendars for Thursdays this summer, and come on down to Minute Man Air Field in Stow, MA. Best of all, we have an extra week this year, as we start on June 1 and end on August 31. Come enjoy the fun on an extra Thursday this summer.
