Aviation Museum keeping history of flight alive

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The McAllister Museum of Aviation in Yakima is working hard to keep local aviation history alive.

It opened in 1998, at the wish of long-time Yakima resident Charlie McAllister. When he died, the non-profit museum was run by volunteers.

With displays featuring local aviators, the museum hopes to get more people involved and interested in aviation.

"What we're trying to do here is continue on with Charlie's dream," said Roberta Delahoussaye who helps run the museum. "To make people aware of just the scope of flying."

The museum runs off donations, memberships and a fuel service they offer.

They'll also be holding an aviation open house next Saturday.
