Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor’s Remote-Control Biggest Little Airshow in Hawaii is back and it’s bigger than ever, Saturday and Sunday, August 16 and 17, 10am to 4pm. Guests will be able to drive on to Ford Island for this event, or take the free shuttle from the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. Sponsors and vendors are invited to participate by calling 808-441-1013.

Guests will be able to experience all the excitement aviation has to offer with over 100 aircraft featured—both real and remote control models—“candy bombings” over historic Ford Island Runway for the keiki, hands-on modeling stations, Hangar 79 Tours to see the aircraft, exhibits, and Restoration Shop, the P-40 Flying Tigers Exhibit, helicopters, jets and aircraft displays in the 85,000 sq. ft. battle scarred hangar. Free concerts will happen each day at noon. There will be food, drinks, retail and entertainment booths and exhibits.

For two days guests can enjoy the opening act performed by talented local performers, Mainland pilots from the Academy of Model Aeronautics, and remote control pilots from Japan. Airshow pilots will fly their massiveremote controlled 1 to 5 scale planes in the skies above the Museum. Specialty acts to be performed include: Pattern, 3-D fixed wing and helicopter aerobatic flights, South Pacific battles, "Candy Bomber" drops, and Skycam helicopters. There'll be remote control aircraft in the air and on static display, including, jets, helicopters, F-22s, warbirds, B-17s, P-38s, Corsairs, OV-10s and more.

Visitors can also enjoy free tours of Hangar 79, which still bears the bullet holes of the December 7, 1941attack.  Inside, guests will see helicopters, fighter planes, and the Lt. Ted Shealy Restoration Shop--the 1941 machine shop which is busy restoring the Museum's aircraft. They’ll also get up close and personal with an F-14 Tomcat, F-15 Eagle, F-86s, P-40, MiG-15, F-111, and the Museum’s “MiG Alley” and Flying Tigers Exhibits.

Admission to the Airshow is $5 per person at the door (including entry to Hangar 79), and $15 per family (limit 6 entries per family). It's free with Museum general admission and free to Museum Members.

Love this Museum. The 2nd Hangar (79) is the best part for me. It feels a little like going back in time because the structure is pretty much straight out of WWII. Plus, you can walk right up to the jets and helicopters (more added all the time). They also do cool special events like an air show of RC aircraft and "Open Cockpit" days where you can climb into some of the cockpits.

Excellent experience! I recommend this as well as the USS Arizona and the USS Missouri! If you take all three from the morning on then you should get your whole trip in one day with plenty to see! Great memories and wonderful pictures!

DO NOT have a party at this place!!! The museum is actually a cool place on the inside, which is too bad because the customer service there is absolutely HORRIBLE!!! We just had our son's 1st birthday at the museum and it was a nightmare for my husband and I. They were unorganized, unhelpful, our magician and photo ppl could not get access onto base, the coordinator we were left with for the night was new and locked herself in the office crying because she could not get help, my husband had to leave the party after it started in order to drive out to another base to get our vendors access to the party, the staff did not know how to work av system, they cut the mic on our food blessing, they claimed our slide show did not work and if we could go home to get another copy after the party started, it was a nightmare for us!! We couldn't even properly greet our guests because we were running around trying to coordinate what should've been taken care of! The worst of it all is though, is that when we brought all of this to the attention of the manager and director, they were both so unprofessional, rude and actually accused us of complaining just because we wanted money back! I couldn't believe the treatment they gave us! They made all these excuses up for our problems, saying 1st it was the military's fault for not granting access on base to our vendors, then it was the vendors fault for not being able to get in, then when asked about a back up plan for handling base access they said 1 of them normally leaves to sponsor them in but they never offer us that. When I brought that up to them they said it was our fault, accusing us of "offering to leave to sponsor our vendors in" so it was our problem. They said our slide show was not formatted correctly, which is bogus because I recorded it myself and played it on 3 separate dvd players, which all worked fine! But all-in-all, the worse was just the treatment we received after bringing to the attention of the manager and director. I actually hung up on the director because he was yelling and accusatory! NO paying customer should have to deal with such awful treatment. I just cannot believe how rude, accusatory and unprofessional they were! I have never had a worse experience with a place EVER! This one is definitely an experience I would never wish on anyone! It's hard to believe such poor treatment and having to pay for a service from any business. A.W.F.U.L.!!!!!

you don't really know who you are until you know where you come from. this is a priceless jewel in the pacific, a place where kids and everyone can go to get educated about the history of hawaii. there is a lot of stuff to do and see, the boat ride to the uss arizona was a fun experience. what better way to honor our heroes and their sacrifice.
