Erickson’s Collection

There are many great museums in this country, it’s something that we are fortunate to have. Erickson’s Collection in Madras, OR is one that I was just introduced to last week but it’s a great collection of aircraft! Originally started in 1983 at Tillamook, OR in one of the old blimp hangars at the NAS station. After the lease expired the collection was moved to Madras where there is a better climate and more open space. The collection privately backed which helps to maintain the collection. Today it was one of the best collections in the West with some truly rare aircraft like their KI-43 Oscar. If you are in the area then this is definitely a place worth stopping at.
