Seaplane Homecoming

September 12, 2015

.  Activities begin at 10:00 AM at Depot Park on the lakefront in Hammondsport.  This once-a-year event is free and open to the public.  In addition to various seaplanes landing and taking off at the lakefront, activities include food and souvenir vendors, wine and beer tasting, live band and raffles – including a drawing for a seaplane ride.

Beginning at 1:00 PM on Saturday, visiting pilots will take part in a “salute to Glenn Curtiss” seaplane parade around Keuka Lake, extending their southern loop directly over the Curtiss gravesite in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery.

A catered dinner will be held at the museum on Saturday evening, featuring speakers, Trafford Doherty, Museum Director; Chris Harmer, U. S. Navy intelligence expert and Michael Lopez-Alegria, space shuttle astronaut.
