YANKS AIR MUSEUM RE-OPENS SATURDAY, APRIL 17
Yanks Air Museum shines again for its grand re-opening after a year of closure
Yanks Air Museum will once again re-open its doors Saturday, April 17, after more than a year of closure since the original stay-at-home orders were given by Gov. Newsom on March 19, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are ready for many happy smiling faces to return through our doors! Staff and volunteers are attending meetings to provide COVID preparedness, as well as the updates and exhibits that are new here at Yanks,” said Yanks Air Museum Director Christen Wright.
Yanks Museum sits on nearly 10 acres of land with two dedicated hangars of more than 200 antique American aircrafts and artifacts on display. Visitors can spend a full day in the museum and yet may not see everything that is housed.
From the Wright 1903 Flyer (replica) to a North America P-51D Mustang in the Legends Hangar to the infamous Blue Angels F/A-18B Hornet in the Starfighter Hangar, there are many military aircraft onsite.
For the re-opening, there will be an entire day lined up with activities, including a P-40 flight demonstration at around 10:30 a.m. with pilot Mark Todd and the new children’s area with a carousel, arcades
and amusement rides located in the Starfighter hangar.
Wright said, “Once again, you will be able to take a selfie with the Blue Angels F-18 Hornet, all aircraft are now sparkling and camera ready.”
Visitors will also have the opportunity to explore and roam through the “boneyard” where old relics lie or can climb aboard the EC-121 “Connie” aircraft.
During the shutdown, Wright said that the museum was able to secure a grant to help keep their staff working and received a lot of support from the community.
“Even while closed the online store continued to received orders and memberships. Emails poured in from everywhere with the kindest words of encouragement. Many of our partners, photographers and friends were hindered through this pandemic too. We look forward to their return and once again becoming one-big-happy-family at Yanks,” Wright said.
The grand re-opening celebration will start at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. Entry for adults is $16, veterans and senior prices are $14 and children (5-11 years) is $5.
Food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available at an additional cost. All children’s rides are open and will be an additional cost as well. There will be temperature checks and sanitizing stations. Social distancing and masks will be required.
AIRPORT PERIMITER ROAD SAFETY REMINDER
The ongoing construction around Chino Airport and specifically on Merrill Avenue has resulted in many airport users accessing the airport perimeter road to exit the south gate at Kimball Avenue.
With the increased traffic, it is important to remember while driving on the perimeter road, the speed limit is 25 mph. The FAA also requires the use of vehicle flashers (hazard lights) while driving in the airport environment at all times.
This guidance is extremely important for the safety of everyone. Please ensure that all visitors, staff and workers follow the safety guidance.
