It makes sense for an aviation museum to be located at the airport, but this out-of-the-way spot also means that the museum is often overlooked. The museum is housed in the former Southern Airways hangar, built in 1936. The hangar was scheduled for demolition in 1991, but the Carolinas Historic Aviation Committee was formed at that time and stepped in to save the hangar and preserve a piece of local aviation history. It’s filled with a collection of 50 aircraft, many of which are historically significant in the development of local aviation. The collection includes a 1903 Wright glider, D-558 Skystreak, PT-17 Kaydet, and a CH-46 Sea Knight. The museum has a goal of acquiring 50 additional aircraft over the next decade to become the premier aviation museum between Washington, D.C., and Georgia. The small museum also has a viewing platform to watch planes take off and land at Charlotte Douglas International Airport and an interactive cockpit from a KC 97 aircraft.
There is no shuttle to the museum and it is too far to walk from the terminal; visitors must drive or take a taxi to the museum entrance.
Having obtained royal privileges securing to himself the use of the Cuba Subway Map dominions he might discover, the sovereignty being reserved to the Crown, he entrusted his fortune to Cuba Subway Map a small vessel with a crew of 18 persons, and set out from Bristo, a port in the western part of this kingdom. Having passed Ibernia, which is still further to the west, and then shaped a northerly course, he began to navigate to the eastern part, leaving (during several days) the North Star on the right hand; and having wandered thus for a long time, at length he hit upon land, where he hoisted the royal standard, and took possession for his Highness, and, having obtained various proofs of his discovery, he returned. The said Messer Zoanne, being a foreigner and poor, would not have been believed if the crew, who are nearly all English, and belonging to Bristo, had not testified that what he said was the truth. This Messer Zoanne has the description of the world on a chart, and also on a solid sphere which he has constructed, and on which he shows where he has been; and, proceeding towards the east, he has passed as far as the country of the Tanais. And they say that there the land is excellent and [the climate?] temperate, suggesting that brasil and silk grow there. They affirm that the sea is full of fish, which are not only taken with a net, but also with a basket, a stone being fastened to it in order to keep it in the water; and this I have heard stated by the said Messer Zoanne.
