Restoration Update for November

November began with the difficult task of removing almost all of the aircraft and exhibits from the main floor of the Century of Flight building in preparation of the floor being resurfaced.  This task involved towing aircraft and engines, removing large parts of exhibits, and driving a reluctant fire engine out of the hangar.

With the hangar almost empty, floor crews came in to transform the well worn floor into something that lends a pristine light to the space.  With the floors completed, our team now has the task of replacing all aircraft and exhibits.

In addition to the floor project, our Restoration team continued work on the B-17 and the HU-16 Albatross, along with keeping up with general Museum maintenance.  Take a look below to see what has been accomplished.
