NBC Los Angeles - National Aviation Day at The Proud Bird


Visit the newly reopened restaurant for a plane-fun craft-making session and aviation tours of the LAX-close landmark.

One way to celebrate National Aviation Day, which takes flight on Saturday, Aug. 19?

Be on a plane, is the short and succinct answer.

But if you don't have a long-distance trip to take, and you won't be buckling in and looking over the safety instructions ahead of ascending to 35,000 feet, fret not. There are ways to learn more about flying machines, aviation history, and to have a little family-style fun in the process, too.

The Proud Bird can assist you with lift-off on the holiday, at least in terms of tours, plane-related crafts, and wing-related beverages, too. The recently refurbished restaurant — it shuttered for well over a year before re-opening with a new food bazaar approach in June 2017 — is inviting airplane aficionados to alight at the LAX-close spot on Aug. 19 for a day full of plane (and plain) fun.
