8:00 am — Museum doors open
9:00 am — Presentation
9:45 am — Corsair Walk-Around and Start-Up
10:00 am — Corsair Taxi and Takeoff
This special event will be held in the WestPac Hangar, located on the museum campus. The presentation will be made in front of the museum’s F3A-1 Corsair, which will be flown subject to weather conditions and runway availability. There’s no additional charge for this event — just purchase a ticket to the museum in advance and arrive early so you can be in place for the presentation. Doors will open at 8 am.
The Corsair was an outstanding naval fighter during the latter half of the Pacific war. It was both an excellent air-to-air fighter and a great ground-support aircraft. It is best known for its role in the South Pacific where the Marines used it with devastating effect in the island campaigns. This presentation will focus on the development of the Corsair and its performance in combat with special emphasis on VMF-214, the Black Sheep Squadron led by Greg “Pappy” Boyington. It will also cover the history of the museum’s F3A-1 Brewster-built Corsair.
Matt Ouding, a longtime civilian and military aviator, will tell the story of the Corsair in World War II.
Join us at the Pikes Peak Center for a night with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band!
Following an extended 50th anniversary tour, the ensemble grew to a six-piece in 2018 for the first time since their early jug band days. The group now includes Jeff Hanna (acoustic guitar, electric guitar), Jimmie Fadden (drums, harmonica), Bob Carpenter (keyboards), Jim Photoglo (bass, acoustic guitar), Ross Holmes (fiddle, mandolin), and Jaime Hanna (electric and acoustic guitar).
All six members also sing, and when their voices merge, the harmonies add a powerful new component for the legendary band. And with the father-son pairing of Jeff and Jaime Hanna, the band carries on a country music tradition of blood harmony.
“The energy these days is so up — and our fans have responded in a really great way,” Hanna says. “As a fan of other bands, I know how complicated it can be when members come and go. You can either embrace that or you don’t. Our fans are really gracious and I appreciate that. It’s been a really good run and there’s a lot of daylight ahead of us.”
About this event
We are the Colorado Brewery Running Series and we run for beer!
Join us for the Veterans Day 5k @ Goat Patch Brewing on November 13th, beginning at 10 AM for a 5k-ish course that starts and ends at this awesome brewery. Weave through the surrounding area at whatever pace you like, no matter what there’s a beer waiting for you at the finish line!
Start windows will be available from 10-11 AM. Each runner/walker will need to start during their 20-minute start wave window. Please do not arrive to check-in more than 20 minutes before your selected start time begins.
We are all about being active, having fun, and giving back to our local community. Since our inaugural Colorado event in 2016, we have been able to donate over $65,000 back to local Colorado nonprofits. This event will add to that tally! 10% of all proceeds go directly to a local organization that will be onsite promoting their organization. So not only do you get to a little exercise and enjoy a great beer, you are contributing to our awesome community!
