The late Paul Allen’s Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum is reopening on May 27. It is located at Paine Field in Everett Washington just north of Seattle. The museum and its collection of beautifully restored and mostly flying / running WW1 and WW2 aircraft and WW2 armor was purchased by Steuart Walton, grandson of Walmart founder Sam Walton. It will initially only be open on the weekends and transition to 5 days a week as they staff up. If you haven’t been there, the collection is extensive, and the restorations are unequaled in authenticity and attention to detail. The aircraft are restored to as delivered from the factory condition - new aircraft, fully equipped. If you look closely even the .50cal rounds have 1944 headstamps. The first aid kits are full, etc. The armored vehicle restoration is not as even. Many of the items have been restored to the as delivered state and run. Others are in earlier stages of restoration. We are all excited to have the museum back and can’t wait to get back inside. FHCAM - Home (flyingheritage.org)
