   Thanks again for putting this together, had a great time putting faces to names, and seeing some cars I had not since the early 80's.

i put a bunch of photos including the drone shots on the museum Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/HickoryAviationMuseum , .  We counted over 500 visitors on the aircraft ramp, so it was a busy day!

Bill Baker really is the man who made this happen.  That and many thanks to him and everyone else who so thanklessly served in our military.  Your service is greatly appreciated!

We officially announced that we'll be building a new aviation museum.  It will be located across the field from where we are now, hopefully we'll be breaking ground early next year and this will allow us to move most if not all of our aircraft inside, protected from birds and weather.  Eventual plans will call for a restaurant/brewpub type establishment along with an outdoor observation area as this complex will face the runway and westward for a beautiful view of the mountains.
