cavalcade of wings

model collection

Anyone who has flown into or out of the Albuquerque Sunport Terminal may have noticed the Cavalcade of Wings display of 1300 models in 18 glass enclosed cases. This display, if the visitor has the time shows the history of aviation that has happened to the Albuquerque area from first Balloon flight in 1882 to what is currently taking place today. The collection covers the history from the private, commercial, military, space and all phases of aviation. Just about everything that flew in the air came through Albuquerque at one time or another. The display captures this history through a large collection of high quality built replicas in miniature of aircraft that had an impact in Albuquerque’s aviation. Most of the models on display are painted and marked in the livery of how the real plane looked when passing through here.
