TULLAHOMA, Tenn. – The Beechcraft Heritage Museum has announced a $1 million expansion of its newest hangar, The Bonanza/Baron.
The Bonanza/Baron hangar is one of the museum’s three exhibit hangars, including the original Walter H. Beech hangar and the Alton “Chuck” Cianchette hangar. The $1 million expansion is set to double the size of the already 18,000 square-foot hangar to 36,000 sq. ft.
The expansion is projected to be completed by mid-October 2017. A formal dedication ceremony is tentatively planned for the museum’s annual Beech Party fly-in Oct. 13-14.
The Beechcraft Heritage Museum is home to more than 35 aircraft. Memorabilia and artifacts trace the history of the Beechcraft airplanes to the company’s founding in 1932, even as far back as the 1920s.
The museum is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday March through November and by appointment in December through February.
Adult admission to the museum is $10. Discounts are available for students, seniors and the military.
