For The Last Time, I Didn't Sabotage Your Plane
When I heard that the Tillamook Air Museum was built to house blimps during World War II, I remembered the movie, "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" which featured the Hindenburg blimp (today's blog title--it's a quote from the movie). Dumb movie, but they had some cool special effects using the blimp and planes from the World War II era. On our last day here, we visited the Tillamook Air Museum, called "Hangar B". It is the largest clear-span wooden structure in the world and it is HUGE--my interior picture doesn't do it justice. You can see the building for miles. Tillamook Air Museum includes not only World War II planes, but motorcycles, helicopters, and planes from the Korean, Viet Nam, and Gulf war.
