The Ford Ole Yeller Mustang is a one-of-a-kind build that will be on display all week at the Ford Hangar celebrating the legendary P-51 Mustang and its remarkable pilot Bob Hoover. This extraordinary vehicle was developed by the Ford design and engineering teams to create a special vehicle to support EAA’s youth education programs, for which Ford’s donated Mustangs have raised $3 million to date.

At the Tough Enough Challenge, visitors can prove they are “tough enough” as they ascend to more than 30 feet on the Cargo Climb, scale the Widowmaker rock wall, and traverse the Skyline ropes. Then they’ll descend on the more than 150-foot Flight Line or leap into a Free Fall pit. Anyone who proves tough enough to finish the challenge will earn a one-of-a-kind paracord bracelet.

The Ford Hangar includes family favorites such as the Tough Tumblers Bungee Trampolines, the Mustang Pinball arcade, and the Tonka Truck and Sand Box. Visitors also can pilot a Ford GT simulated racer, fashion their own wearable art at the Wear Your Adventure Button Creation station, create a unique vehicle design, and watch their custom creations come to life through the magic of augmented reality or assemble a Ford GT with the Ford GT Snap Kit.
