HANGAR GOING UP

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Constructing the steel building that will be the Civil Air Patrol/McAllister Museum hangar began this week. Components arrived from R&M Steel Company of Caldwell, Idaho, last week. Now the job of putting all the pieces together is being done by Valley Steel Constructors of Yakima.

Vernon Forenpohar & Sons Excavating Inc. did the excavating for the footings and handled the backfilling and grading for the floor.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATri-Ply Construction is general contractor for the project and oversaw building forms for the footings and stem walls and installation of the basic plumbing.

City of Yakima’s Water Distribution workers relocated our water meter and installed a fire hydrant.

Poppoff Inc. took care of the concrete floor, poured and finished early last week.

 

Visitor impressed

Hi, I’m Dennis Smith,

My wife and I along with our service dog visited your museum on Saturday the 17th of January in the afternoon. I just wanted to tell you how impressed we were. As a pilot and veteran I enjoy aviation museums and have been to several all over the country, and I must say that even though it’s a very small museum it’s one of the finest I’ve been to. You’ve done a great job covering the history and major events and milestones of aviation.

The gentleman who greeted us and told us a brief history of the museum and the founder did a great job, very knowledgeable and friendly.  You can be sure I will recommend and give high praise to this museum to anyone interested in this.
Thank you for a great experience on Saturday; it was well worth the day trip from Seattle. By the way, it was nice to see a C.A.P. exhibit as well.
