Wings of the North Museum is OPEN!

Wings of the North operates a museum on Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.  The Wings of the North Air Museum currently houses three award winning aircraft.  They are a P-51D Mustang named Sierra Sue II that saw action in Europe during World War II, and AT-6 Texan, and a Boeing N2S-1 Stearman that was used for training at the MSP Naval Air Station during WWII and was flown by future President George Herbert Walker Bush.  All the planes have been beautifully restored.
