INSPIRING, EDUCATING, AND ENTERTAINING

1979


Momentum Builds – In 1979, the museum received its first real home, a 7,500-sq. ft. facility at 11 Lily Street–an old police signals garage and support building. Volunteers and board members put up the sweat equity to bring the vision to life. At last, the museum could display the Froebe Helicopter (donated by the Froebe family in 1976), a Tiger Moth, some aircraft engines and a host of other aviation memorabilia. The garage space provided a half-decent restoration shop to work on the Fairchild 24–the first restoration project for the volunteers with fabric and wood working skills, skills which had long since given way in the aviation industry to new materials and methods.
