The Grumman Hellcat was one of the most important aircraft of World War II, helping turn the tide of the war in the Pacific and we need your help getting this historic aircraft and other like it to the  Wings, Wheels Rotors and Expo (October 26th, 2014, Los Alamitos, California). The Wings, Wheels, Rotors  Expo is a not for profit 501 (c)(3) event featuring contemporary and historic airplanes, helicopters and cars, benefiting military veterans  causes and the Los Alamitos Area Chamber of Commerce. There are very few of these wonderful warbirds left and its important for people to know about the critical contribution this aircraft and others like them made to the freedom we enjoy in this country today.

Bringing one of these planes to the Expo is costly as it consumes expensive aviation fuel and oil. Maintaining a high performance aircraft isn't cheap either. The aircraft owner needs funds to fly this plane from its home base to the Expo.  As like many aircraft owners, owning an aircraft like this is a labor of love and while they would like to share their treasure with the public, its too costly to bear the expense alone.  The public loves to see, hear and experience these historic aircraft and without your help, this plane and others won't be able to make the trip. Please help more than 30,000 attendees at this free-to-the-public event, experience the pride and joy of seeing this Grumman Hellcat in person.
