Come Celebrate the Last Wings Wings and Keels at Hummel Field

The 20th annual and final Wings, Wheels and Keels celebration is set for this Saturday, September 26th at Hummel Airfield in Topping. This event is free and runs from 8am-4pm.
“This is the grand finale — last dance. Twenty years has been a good run,” said event founder Jamie Barnhardt. “If it is a rain-free day, it is planned to be the pinnacle of 20 years work showcasing the value of Hummel Airfield and community service.”
 Barnhart said the day includes a variety of vendors, more than 200 classic cars, 30 antique watercraft and 100 antique and classic aircraft.There will be a children's carnival, bluegrass music, and a radio-controlled turbine jet air show, as well as an opportunity to ride in an open cockpit airplane.
“This year is the 20th event and (we) will be going out with the best show ever,” Barnhardt said. “Having gone to many different types of auto and aircraft shows, I have never been to one so diverse as this one.”
The Virginia Department of Aviation is also having the Ambassador Ceremony at this event near the DOAV trailer at 11am. If you have completed the program then please stop by to get recognized and share your story with others who have also completed the program. We look forward to seeing you there!
