Group Aims to Build Aviation Museum in Spokane

Oct 08, 2012 No Comments by

A nonprofit organization is gearing up for a campaign to create a new military and aerospace museum at Felts Field in northeast Spokane, Wash. The Spokane Airport Board recently approved a lease to allow construction of the museum on a 14,400-square-foot parcel on Rutter Avenue just west of the Felts Field terminal.

Larry Krauter, chief executive officer for Spokane airports, said the project is part of an overall plan to upgrade the Felts Field Historic District and enhance its connection to the surrounding neighborhoods.

The organization formerly known as the Armed Forces and Aerospace Museum Society voted last week to change its name to the Honor Point Military and Aerospace Museum.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
