Iowa Museum Showcases Hawkeye Aviation

Iowa Museum Showcases Hawkeye Aviation

Twenty-five years ago, Roger Pointer had an idea. He envisioned a place that would house memorabilia honoring both the state’s military aviation and general aviation history.

Pointer is a member of the Commemorative Air Force, based in Texas. It was founded to “acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft which were flown by all military services of the United States,” according to its website.

Pointer wanted a place closer to home, in Iowa, that could house and showcase the state’s military aviation history.
