Museum Offers Surplus Aircraft Engines For Sale

The Museum's vast collection of aircraft, parts, and engines has been accumulated over a period of many years. From time to time, the Museum's staff identifies artifacts that can be considered surplus as they do not fit in with our future restoration plans. The proceeds from these sales will help to sustain the Museum's current operations including its restoration needs. Currently the Museum has some excess aircraft engines for sale that can be seen here.
