I loved the brunch and dinner selections. I have a feeling the new and improved Proud Bird won't be bring any of that back based on what I've read. It is now closed for almost the remainder of the year for remodeling.

We are looking for locations to shoot a student a student based film project for school. We were wondering if we could film in front of one of the airplanes. We only need to film one scene and it shouldn't take more than 15-20 minutes. Would you let us film on your property? Are the planes available for viewing during the renovation? Thank You, Jack
