The Dakota Territory Air Museum opens Saturday for its 26th season in Minot.

Museum officials are excited about a display that will be at the museum through the summer.

The Texas Flying Legends will be featured from Memorial Day through August.

The Legends fly World War Two aircrafts as a way to honor pilots of that era and inspire future aviation leaders.

Minot’s Warren Pietsch is the lead pilot of the group.

Along with the Legends, the Air Museum will feature its large display of other aircrafts, including a history of Minot Air Force Base planes.

It also has an extensive collection of historical items from aviation over the past century.

(Don Larson, Dakota Territory Air Museum) “I like the history in the museum. The story that’s told through the displays, the history of aviation in our area, a lot of civilian history, a lot of military history.”

The Dakota Territory Air Museum is located just north of the Minot Airport.

It opens for the season Saturday and is open from 10-5 Monday through Saturday, and from 1-5 on Sundays.
