FHC February Newsletter

February 2017


Why War: The Causes of Conflict is the newest exhibition at Paul G. Allen’s Flying Heritage Collection on Paine Field in Everett, Washington. Why War is a highly interactive media rich exhibit that explores the roots of military confrontations throughout our nation’s history. Dynamic large-scale touchscreens, engaging infographics, and rare historical artifacts examine conflict through the lenses of inciting factors, key figures, technology, and pop culture to demonstrate the common causes of war. Why War’s engaging interactives let families, community groups, and school classes choose how they want to explore this complex topic.  Don't miss talks from Jim Walther and Greg Cashman on March 1st and 2nd!

This engaging exhibit opens to FHC Members and Volunteers at 9:00 AM and to the general public at 10:00 AM on March 4th.
