2009 Museums: NAS Tillamook Air Museum

KTMK:  N45 25 05 W123 48 51

This unique museum is housed in the remaining blimp hangar at former NAS Tillamook.  This hangar is considered the largest wood construction in the world and used to house a full squadron of patrol blimps during WWII (ZP-33).  Click here to visit the museum's website.
