Air Force Academy Graduation 

Wednesday, May 23 

Congratulations to the Air Force Academy’s Graduating class of 2012! The Western Museum of Mining & Industry is honored to be the Academy’s neighbor…and lucky too!

Here is why:

Elkton Headframe and U.S.A.F. Thunderbirds

The Mining Museum is the perfect place to watch the amazing aerial acrobatics of the U.S.A.F. Thunderbirds as they fly for AFA Graduation. Bring and enjoy a picnic lunch by our spring fed ponds and flowering meadow as you experience the mighty Thunderbirds soar over you!

This is a fund raising event for the nonprofit Mining Museum, so a suggested parking donation of $5 is appreciated. Before or after the fly over, get a $1 off regular admission to tour the museum.  Museum tours begin at 10:00 a.m. & 1:00 p.m. Make it a whole day of fun!

We are located at I-25 Exit 156A directly across from the AFA.  Click here for direction.
