Work Party

Members of VMPA worked with Dave King on his World War II Willys MB, to restore the vehicle for the 2009 Interstate Highway Convoy. The event, which took place in June 2009, had military vehicle owners drive their vehicles from Washington, DC all the way to San Francisco, California.

2009 Yorktown Memorial Day

Members of VMPA and Fox Company were invited to the Yorktown Memorial Day event held at the veterans monument in old town Yorktown, VA.

2009 Virginia Beach Air Show

After last year's by-invitation Memorial Day event, the Fighter Factory opened its doors to the public in 2009 for the first Virginia Beach Air Show. The show featured static and flying vintage aircraft, living history displays, veterans' speeches, and a USO-type hangar dance and drew a large crowd, even though the weather was not the best. VMPA members, including Fox Company, were among the reenactors.
