Hangar Happenings: Oct/Nov 2010


Happy Fall!
      As the leaves come tumbling down the grass runway, it makes for a beautiful sight to watch the museum's vintage planes in flight.  There are several opportunities to enjoy the view, experience the sights and sounds of the countryside and take in the activities at the Military Aviation Museum.  So, join us for these fall happenings or just come out to kick-off your Christmas shopping in the Gift Shop.  New items have been added and Patti Nelson, Gift Shop Manager, continues to be on the hunt for unique aviation and vintage looking memorabilia.
