McMinnville Flight Museum, Part II

Besides the huge building that houses the Spruce Goose, their are 2 other buildings, dedicated to
1)  History of Planes
The entrance to the History of War Planes, and heroes,  The last 2 buildings housed the Astronaut

memorabilia , and the History of War Planes, and development of early flight.  I have intermingled 
the pictures from both buildings.

The 1st building was the displays of both War planes, up to Space memorabilia.  2nd was Spurce goose, and the 3rd was the theater.  

An actual space suit used by the astronauts

A training capsule used by the Astronauts 

Blackbird SR 71 in as much of its entirety that I could get.  This reconnaissance plane was designed in the 1950's and would still be the most advanced spy plane in the present time if it had not been discontinued!


Part of tbe Blackbird, SR 71

 Sikorsky war helicopter c the time of the Korean war, and Viet Nam.  Although I have many more picture from McMinnville, I think this is plenty.  I was so excited about these planes, that I got carried away!               PS. a Drone.
