EAA 284 visits Tri-State Warbirds Museum

Tri-State Warbirds Museum
Our Experimental Aviation Association EAA Chapter 284 had a superb meeting Sunday afternoon at the Tri-State Warbirds Museum in Batavia Ohio. (Clermont County Airport I69) About ten members from our chapter met at 2 PM to hold a brief chapter meeting and tour the museum. We enjoyed a guided tour of the aircraft on display — most which fly at least once a year — and a restricted area tour of the well equipped restoration shop. The volunteers giving us the tour shared their knowledge and gave us a great tour. Check out the 50 or so photos in a web slide show below.

corsairI found the restoration of a FG-1D Corsair one of the most interesting, but the impressive P-51 Mustang (Cincinnati Miss), a T-6D Texan, a TBM-3 Avenger, a Boeing Stearman (Model 75), Link ANT-18 Trainer and B-25 Mitchell were all great. We were a couple weeks too early to see the latest restoration project … a Curtiss-Wright P-40 Kittyhawk — another excuse to go back.

If you enjoy aviation, and warbirds in particular, be sure to fly in or drive to Clermont Country Airport just east of Cincinnati. The museum is open from 4-7 PM on Wednesdays or 10-3 PM on Saturdays; admission is $12, or $7 if you are a veteran or student.
