This Sherman M4A1 tank will be part of Tankfest Northwest on Monday at Everett’s Paine field

To honor military veterans, the Flying Heritage Collection at Paine Field is holding Tankfest Northwest with free admission for vets.

This Memorial Day from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM the Flying Heritage Collection salutes wartime heroes with parade, firing demonstrations, vintage tanks and activities; free admission for veterans.

TankFest Northwest is an all-day event that brings history alive for the community and honors the military innovations of the past, as meticulously restored WWII-era tanks and vintage artillery put on an explosive show for the crowd.

This year, three tanks from FHC – a new Sherman tank, a Soviet T-34 and Hetzer tank destroyer – will drive and fire, a rare Kettenkrad will zip about, and two vintage Flak guns will shoot during live demonstrations. The Puget Sound Military Vehicle Collectors Club will kick off the day with a festive parade, and private collectors will showcase a wide selection of rare wartime artifacts including tanks, a military motorbike, jeeps and trucks. Mobile Lunch Box will be at the event, serving up burgers and fries.
