A Word of Thanks

Dear Volunteers,

I wanted to express my sincere appreciation to all our volunteers for a job well done!

Over the weekend I was able to make numerous observations that lead me to believe the future of Wings of the North is bright and promising.

As you may know, most of my previous experience with Air Expo was to handle the flight line duties.

This year I was able to spend some time observing other jobs that were being done by the volunteers of Wings of the North.

I observed countless examples of people that gave 150% effort towards completing the task at hand. In many cases it may not have even been their primary job, they just picked up the ball and ran with it!

Thank you volunteers, looking forward to working with you!

Sad News

Long time friend of Wings of the North  – Vlado Lenoch was lost along with his passenger Bethany Root in P-51D Mustang “Baby Duck” yesterday in a crash in Kansas.  Our condolences to both families in this terrible tragedy.  We most recently saw Vlado fly Sierra Sue II in a heritage flight with an F-35 at the Duluth, MN airshow in June.

It is Finally Here…

It has been a long wait, but the F4U-4 Corsair has finally arrived at the museum.  The plan is to fly it AirExpo on Saturday and Sunday.  Come out and see!  Thanks to Jeremy Dando for the photo.

Special Guests at the Museum

The museum welcomed some special guests on a tour this week.  Members of the Retired Northwest Pilots Association (http://www.rnpa.org/) came together and got a special tour of the museum arranged through the Northwest Airlines History Center (http://www.nwahistory.org).
