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).

Sign of the Times

Our long awaited sign is now finally in place on the side of the museum building.  It was worth the wait!
