Lots of World War Two aircraft and other memorabilia will be featured in the new 64,000 square foot air museum at the Madras Airport. 

 

Airport Manager Rob Berg says this is going to be huge for all of Central Oregon.

 

"This will be the first one of its kind in Central Oregon. And it is a big deal, not just for the Madras Airport, but for all of Central Oregon and tourism for the whole area. The draw for a WWII type air museum with flying aircraft; it's a once in a lifetime chance for a lot of people to see these airplanes."

 

Berg says they hope to have the museum open by the end of summer, just in time for the Air Show of the Cascades that usually draws more than 10,000 visitors to the area.

 

Erickson Aero Air is bringing its museum from Tillamook to Madras because the climate and conditions are much better for the aircraft.
