Erickson Aircraft Collection

Some of the biggest heroes of WWII are on display inside the Erickson Aircraft Collection. In 1983, Jack Erickson started to collect rare but significant aircraft from aviation's history with a special emphasis placed on Navy and Air Force planes from WWII. Eventually, the collection grew to a size that warranted its own custom-built 64,00-square-foot hangar.

  • Size: more than 20 rare aircraft that sprawl across an open hangar
  • Eye Catcher: the B-17's nose art, which was painted by aviation artist and historian Gary Velasco
  • Early Airliner: the Lockheed P-38 Lightning, which was a readily recognized U.S. Army Air Force fighter in use during WWII
  • Something More Acrobatic: the P-47 Thunderbolt, which was able to dive with grace despite being the heaviest armed single-engine American fighter of WWII
  • Hidden Gems: A working jeep and tank also sit out on the hangar floor, though they most likely can't fly.
  • On Display: remnants of Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto's Mitsubishi G4M shot down by WWII fighter pilot Rex T. Barber
  • Special Events: You can see many of the planes in flight during local air shows.

In the front of the hanger is a large cargo airplane known as a Guppy which we were able to board. Th... Read More

"Amazing Hanger - Limited Aircraft"
I'm an aircraft nut so I enjoyed my time here. The most impressive part of the whole tour is the hanger; over 1,000 feet long, over 300 feet wide, and 20-some stories high. They could fit a full-size cruise ship inside this structure. And it's all made of wood. There is an informative ... Read More
