Fantasy of Flight and the Imperial Mustangs of Polk County hosted the Mustang Club of America’s National Show, “Mustangs and Mustangs—Legends Havin’ Fun,” April 8-10. This is the only event that features both beautifully restored P-51 Mustang warbirds from WWII and Ford Mustang automobiles in the state of Florida annually. This is the first year that the show was held over three days.
Fantasy of Flight, founded by Kermit Weeks, features the “world’s largest private aircraft collection”—over 70 beautifully restored rare and vintage aircraft—as well as Corsair flight simulators, a gift shop and the art deco “Compass Rose Diner.”
The aviation-themed attraction is in Polk City, Fla., halfway between Orlando and Tampa. It takes visitors back to early flight, World War I, World War II and beyond.
