Cleveland Aviation Museum Steering Back Into View

Nov 18, 2012 No Comments by

The Crawford Auto Aviation Collection is coming out of hibernation in the depths of winter.

The transportation arm of the Western Reserve Historical Society will reopen to the public Feb. 2, after a undergoing a year’s worth of renovation. Walls have been knocked down to create better sight lines, allowing a better presentation of the society’s collections.

Most of the vehicles that had been on display will return, said Derek Moore, curator of transportation.

The space is almost empty now. If you were to sneak in this week, the only thing you’d see is a dramatic tableau of Cleveland transportation history: Two 1930s air racers appear to be rounding a pylon much as they did during the Golden Age of that sport between the world wars.

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.
