Local aviation enthusiast Rick Nash came forward and built our 18,500 square foot hangar.
The museum had acquired its C-45 Twin Beech from Northstar Aviation and a year later just by chance located the original DC-3 that dropped the Mann Gulch smokejumpers in August 1949, where 13 died in the fire.
A number of local volunteers keep the museum open every day from Memorial Day weekend to mid-September.
