Our Silver Wings Lounge is also very unique. Decorated in the traditional aviation style, you can look back in history at some of the most interesting photos, memorabilia and displays in Scottsdale, including autographed photographs signed by the United States Air Force Thunderbird Pilots. And don’t forget to take a look at our center piece table in the Lounge. The base is made from a vintage World War II aircraft radial engine.
