Start your weekend with Food Truck Fridays at the Museum of Aviation from 10:30am-1:30pm. Every week is a different experience with vendors from across the Central Georgia region. This week vendors include Sofrito Fusion Food Truck, Francar’s Buffalo Wing, Scott Boys BBQ, Simply Cupcakes & More.
For a special experience, bring a blanket and enjoy a picnic under the wings of the dozens of planes displayed around the perimeter of the property. After lunch, enjoy a stroll through the 2nd largest Air Force Museum in the country. Make sure to stop in the Scott Exhibit hangar where they are actively restoring a B-17, one of the most famous airplanes ever built and used for bombing during World War II.
