Each year on the Friday night prior to the actual car show, a Poker Fun Run is held in Warner Robins. The Run is sponsored and carried out for the Museum of Aviation by the members of Corvettes Ltd. of Central Georgia. Anyone can enter the run -- in any type of vehicle -- whether they are registered in the car show or not. The run is very popular with motorcyclists.
Entrants register at the Museum of Aviation (Hangar One) between 6:00 and 6:45p.m. They receive a player's sheet directing them to go to six merchants in Warner Robins to draw a card and receive a promotional gift. The last stop is the parking lot between Hooter's and Steak 'n Shake where they can buy one additional card for $1.00. The poker hands are then recorded and the best three hands win cash prizes of $75, $50 and $25. Oldies D.J. Tommy Landrum provides the background music for the parking lot party and additional door prizes are given out.

One of the last car shows of the season on the second Saturday in October, "Wings & Wheels" is an annual fund raiser conducted by the Museum of Aviation Foundation with a lot of help from several local car clubs and enthusiasts. The setting is the beautiful Museum of Aviation next to Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, Georgia. Profits go towards the growth and development of the Museum of Aviation, the largest education-focused aviation museum in America!
The first two Wings & Wheels show were held in the late '80s when the museum only had one building. Today the museum has four climate controlled buildings on 51 acres with 100 aircraft and missiles on display. The entire Museum is open to the public on show day. Since 1995, the shows have been held yearly and the 2006 show will be the 14th "Wings & Wheels." Between 250 and 275 vehicles enter the show.
Over the years, the shows have drawn cars, trucks and motorcycles from all over Georgia and surrounding states. The show is continually refined and changed based on annual surveys sent out to all entrants. New attractions have been added over the years like a $500 cash giveaway ($50 cash prize every 15 minutes), monster truck rides, displays of model aircraft and radio controlled models, and battery-operated kiddie car races started in 2003.
The show (and the Museum) are free to the public and an estimated 8,000-10,000 spectators attend Wings & Wheels making it the largest one-day public-attended event at the Museum each year. Oldies music is provided by Tommy Landrum, one the best car show DJs in the southeast. All entrants receive a 10% discount to the unique Museum of Aviation Gift Shop and chances to win some nice door prizes.
