Hickory NC Aviation Museum
Posted by Tojo72 on Monday, March 7, 2022 2:46 PM

Saturday I went to a meeting of the Hickory NC Modelers,they hold it in a fantastic Hobby Town,it's pretty much like a mom and pop shop with a lots of supplies and kits.It was really good to sit around and chat with fellow modelers and show off some builds for a couple of hours.

Afterwards I had to stop at the museum,it's in a small airport,they have quite a few pieces,but they're beat up,but they are veteran aircraft.Inside they have quite a few models on display along with some memorabila.There's no admission,just by voluntary donation,so stop in for an hour or so if your in the area.

I never get tired of looking at these display aircraft.  Every so often I run by the old Olathe Naval Air Station site to look at their displays. One of them is a two seater A7.

About two and a half hours from me. I keep meaning to get down there. Think I'll give it a shot this spring when it warms up some more.
