Bonneville ‘Speed Week’ 2016
Back in 2012, the Aircraft Windshield Team went to the SCTA Speedweek at the Bonneville Salt Flats to witness the record breaking achievements of the many crews they had the pleasure of working with.
Now, in 2016 they will return to experience ‘Salt Fever’ and watch as these teams attempt to shatter their previous records. Here are a few of the projects that AWC has worked with…
