What do you store in the biggest building in a small town?
When the building was built during WWII it housed blimps, yes blimps. Now a-days the building is home to the air museum. I would consider this a "museum in progress" as they are working to build their collection.
The first plane I explored actually let you go inside the plane. It was a cargo plane used for transporting some sort of cargo. Probably fresh smoked salmon from Alaska.
Besides the large cargo plane they had some smaller planes on display too.
|You could sure fit a lot of salmon in here.|
|This one looks in good shape. Now how do I convince my roommates I need to take flying lessons?|
Does everyone remember Jerry and Ben's friend Karl the University student from Canada? I believe he was studying "Arctic Studies" at some college way up north in Canada. I bet this plane is used in his universities fleet to study about the Arctic.
|Unfortunately the sun didn't cooperate for my photos but the plane says "arctic research laboratory"|
Who knew a town known for it's cheese also had a nice little museum. Speaking of cheese I am off to the factory for some free samples....
