The carrier based F6F Grumman Hellcat (Pacific Theatre) along with other WWII aircraft helped turn the tide of the war allowing Naval and Army air forces and troops push on to victory. We need your help getting the Hellcat and other great aircraft like it to the free-to-the-public Wings, Wheels, Rotors and Expo (WWRE) October 26th, Los Alamitos, CA. http://www.wwrexpo.net/. The Wings, Wheels, Rotors, Expo is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) event featuring beautifully restored WWII military aircraft, cars and helicopters. All proceeds from vendor space sales go to help veterans' causes and the Los Alamitos Chamber of Commerce, primary sponsor of the this event.

Getting these planes to the Expo is costly as they use expensive aviation gas and oil and require special maintenance. As with many owners of these historic aircraft, the cost of keeping them flying is very high and getting some of them to and flying them at the Expo can only happen when people like you are willing to help. The public loves to see, hear and experience these high-performance aircraft. We need these aircraft at the Expo not only to enjoy but to educate the next generation about what it took to keep our liberty. Please help more than 30,000 attendees of all ages at this free-to-the-public event, experience the sights and sounds of these wonderful aircraft that helped buy us the freedoms that we enjoy today.
