The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum has been updating some of it’s exhibits, and we thought you would like a look at the new arrangements. Better yet, visit the museum for yourself and surround yourself in St. Louis area aviation history!
The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum has begun in earnest to do some “Spring Cleaning” and start on some new projects that will improve the visitor experience. The museum is preparing for the upcoming Midwest Airport Fun Days event planned for June 7-8 by arranging some of the aircraft in their historic 1929 Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2 for easier viewing. Space is also being made in the hangar for the arrival of a Pietenpol Air Camper, an aircraft being restored by neighboring EAA Chapter 64, due to arrive in the coming weeks. At the same time, the museum’s vintage Laister-Kauffman LK-10 USAAF training glider will be moved from one hangar bay to another as preparations are made for its restoration and future display. A team of specialists continues to work on the museum’s Lockheed Jetstar aircraft, providing electrical power and improved ventilation of the classic executive jet. Much more is planned for the coming year, and the museum welcomes new members who share a desire to bring aviation history to our community. Work on the LK-10 glider was performed just outside the museum’s hangar recently:
