The Museum of Flight – Calling All WWII History Buffs

LIFT FEB 2020


To help relieve the boredom and frustration in these semi-sequestered times, the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington has come up with a couple of online ideas which might prove entertaining/educational for many of us. One of them involves alcohol, nose art and paint brushes (what could go wrong!), while the other features in-depth lectures covering WWII aviation history. So there is something there for every disposition, as their recent press release reveals…


Create your own art party with our online experience that combines a dash of decoration, a pinch of airplane history, and recipes for vintage cocktails to awaken your inner aviation-artist.

Aircrews have long flown into harm’s way emboldened by the personal artwork decorating their aircraft. Now let The Museum of Flight’s Nose Art Cocktail Party help you combat the daily grind. During this online program, our Curator entertains you with the history of military airplane Nose Art… and our drinks master will show you how to make the classic World War II cocktails which helped win the battles on all fronts.

We will help you prepare for the party by providing a booklet with detailed, delicious cocktail recipes, nose art history and an assortment of nose art templates (like a coloring book!). Adorn these pages or create your own original paintings using your favorite medium. And voila!

Shaken or stirred, your Nose Art is a masterpiece, and the cocktail party a success. This event is for those aged 21 and over…
