Flying Heritage Collection Hangar Opening

On Friday, I was lucky to attend the Grand Opening of the Flying Heritage Collection's new hangar at Paine Field.  Here are a few pictures.

The newly restored Hellcat had its first flight only a few weeks ago.




I know the scheme is slightly controversial, but I really like the look of the A6M2 Zero.




The MiG-29 is back on display.


This is not a common sight in US flying museums. (The IL-2 is having a little work done on the flying surfaces.)


More of the IL-2. Some inspiration for the new Tamiya kit.

Bill,

It is at Paine Field in Everett, WA, just north of Seattle.
