Man has always desired entertainment. It used to be that he’d entertain himself during the day with only sleep to fill his lonely nights. Then man invented fire. Now he could draw pictures of his friends and accomplishments on dark cave walls. Next he invented the light bulb. Soon after came nitrocellulose film and the projector (right around the same time as the Air Mail Service I wager). Now man had moving pictures for entertainment! Finally man made it to the nuclear age after learning to split the atom and harness its power.

We at Antique Airfield have packed the power of cold fusion into a bright, high quality, HD projector of aviation movies for your evening enjoyment. Of course the screen has to be rather large, nine feet by twelve feet actually (or if you prefer fifteen feet diagonally), so as not to melt. The happy side effect will be the ability to see these grand mail carrying aviation movies from the wind tee if one wishes.
Of course, just in case you were to chose to enjoy this entertainment spectacle whilst spinning about on the wind tee (as in the days of your youth), we must also provide for an equally technologically mind blowing sound system! All the better to hear it with if you please. Well placed extraordinarily high quality, rich sounding speakers will flank the screen (not so close as to melt however) hooked into a 5000 watt pro audio system. And who knows, we may even shoot for surround sound this year!
So come join us, while your aircraft rests, tied down in the grass at Antique Airfield. Don’t worry; it will still be there in the morning when we will carry the mail ourselves, recreating the pageantry and wonder of the previous night’s entertainment.
