Wings N' Wheels (copy)

A 1957 Chevy participated in the Wings 'N' Wheels event at Minter Field Air Museum in Shafter in this 2018 file photo. This year's event has been canceled.

Minter Field Air Museum announced Monday that this year’s Wings 'N' Wheels exhibit, scheduled for Nov. 14, has been canceled because of concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

In a post on its Facebook page, the Shafter museum said the event is its biggest fundraiser of the year. With that in mind, the museum asked the “public, friends and neighbors” to help with a donation, if possible.

“If you were planning to enter your car or just coming out to the event, please consider sending that amount as a donation to the Minter Field Air Museum,” the post read, which was signed by board chairman Ronald Pierce.
