Heritage In Flight Museum Air Park Part of Midwest Museum Tour
By Carmelo Turdo
The Aero Experience recently hit the road through central Illinois, and one of the stops was the air park at the Heritage In Flight Museum at Logan County Airport in Lincoln, IL. Although the museum tours are by appointment, the air park is always accessible and a welcome opportunity to stretch after hours on the road. A variety of aircraft were on display, including a UH-1D Iroquois, C-45F Expeditor, F-4B Phantom II (in USAF colors), and A-7E with Desert Storm mission markings, a T-33A Shooting Star and several civil aircraft. Some interesting emergency vehicles were also parked among the aircraft. Next time you are scouting Midwest air museums, make an appointment to tour the exhibits (we will next time!) and check out the air park. As for the weather, well, you never know!
