Bush Stearman and TBM Avenger Return Home
The Bush Stearman and the TBM Avenger returned to the museum yesterday from AirCorps Aviation after annual inspections, maintenance, and some upgrades. Most notably, the Stearman now sports an electrical system and radio. Both are carefully hidden to not destroy the look the airplane had in its World War II configuration.
Wings of the North is hosting our annual Pancake Breakfast and Open House on May 6! Stop on by for some great pancakes, conversations, planes, and friends! You will have the opportunity to tour the museum, hear some great stories, meet other pilots, and see some great planes (Yes!

Donation from Curt Hills and the MIA Hunters
The museum has been given four Bryan Moon prints to display in the Wings of the North Aviation Art Gallery at the museum. Three are about the World War II raid on the Ploesti, Romania oil refineries. The fourth is a North American B-25 Mitchell lifting off the USS Hornet in April of 1942 to attack Tokyo as part of the famous Doolittle raid. The paintings include two letters to Bryan Moon from Jimmy Doolittle and a piece of aircraft #3 recovered from its crash site in China. In addition MIA Hunters also made a cash donation.
We are grateful to the MIA Hunters and their board member Brig. Gen. Dennis Schulstad, Ret. for their work and for thinking of the Wings of the North Air Museum!
How Many WOTN Volunteers Does it Take to Put a Wheel on the Spirit of St. Louis?
After an evening of work, the Spirit of St. Louis is now on display in the museum hangar. Be sure to come and check it out on the ground before we hoist it up to hang from the ceiling.
