New Hangar at Air Museum

Posted: Updated:

Construction of a very large addition to the Dakota Territory Air Museum is complete.

Gary Brode explains how this addition means more possibilities for the museum.

The Dakota Territory Air Museum recently completed a big addition to its grounds.... A really big addition.

With the new 22,500 square foot hangar, the museum can now display even more historical aircrafts.

(Don Larson, President, Air Museum) "It's been a tremendous, tremendous addition and a lot interest in the community with this new facility, this new building going up."

The museum itself garnished a lot of attention from an aviation group in Texas, one of the reasons for the new hangar.

(Don Larson, President, Air Museum) "It's here because of the Texas Flying Legends Group. They wanted a place to put their airplanes each spring and we ran out of room to get them all inside."

With contributions from the legends group and a community development grant from the city of Minot the addition was able to be built.

Plans other than displaying vintage aircrafts may be in the future for the enormous building.

(Don Larson, President, Air Museum) "We will be able to utilize the facility....for community events, some socials, conventions might be having in town and a few things like that. There is a lot of square footage here and an extremely nice facility for some activity."

 

Visit Minot wants to use the facility as an attraction for an evening social or any other type of large scale event.

Larson says no plans have been set yet but is certainly open to ideas from members of the community.

What the new Flying Legends Building does do is provide a greater opportunity to expand an already impressive display of aviation history.

In Minot, Gary Brode, KX News."

The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on the Fourth of July.

Flying demonstrations, a musical show from Texas, the local band Soulshine and fireworks are all in store for entertainment for the day.

Festivities begin at 4 o'clock.
