Iditarod pilot and president of the Alaska Chapter of Cessna 180 Club Tony Turinski will wow and zow an audience of onlookers with his harrowing and insightful stories of flying the 1,049 mile Iditarod trail tonight on Friday March 8, at the Alaska Aviation Museum.
The event will also feature live music, food, and a slide show of Iditarod photos from past races by Rob Stapleton.
“This is going to be lots of fun because when you think of dog mushing in Alaska you think of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race,” said Shari Hart, executive director of the Alaska Aviation Museum. “This race is supported by the Iditarod Air Force that delivers dogfood, hay and race officials to the checkpoints along the trial from Anchorage to Nome. Aviation is a very big part of the race, and Tony is one hell of a storyteller to pass along this adventure.”
Lisa Good will present live music as people wander through the museum’s hangars that are full of aviation memorabilia.
There will also be a silent auction to help raise funds for this non-profit museum. For more information and to buy tickets in advance (hurry up…) call 907-248-5325
