Evergreen Aviation Museum Visit

Hughes H-4 Hercules
A family trip had us in the Pacific Northwest about two weeks ago. One day I took our boy to the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, Oregon. My last visit there was over 10 years ago so I was curious to see the museum again. A good number of the Warbirds in the collection were purchased by the Collings Foundation but I was pleasantly surprised that there were plenty of unique airplanes on display. A good number of vintage, Warbird and jets fill the space around the flying boat.

H-4 is just huge!
The main mission for the trip was to have our boy see the Hughes H-4 Hercules flying boat. The massive airplane just overwhelmed him! The 8 engine, one of a kind aircraft fills the main display building with ALL the other airplanes fitting under its wings and tail!

The Goose and PBY look small.

Me-262 replica on display.
So I highly recommend the museum. Plan on spending 4-6 hours there to make the cost worth it and explore the multi-building museum.
