Moving Sale

With the recent purchase of the property and buildings next to Brodhead Airport where we intend to construct our new museum building, we inherited quite a collection of aviation parts and accessories from the previous owner. Not to mention quite a collection of non-aviation “stuff”.

After several weeks of removing the collectible items that can be used in our museum or resold to other aviation museums or collectors, we had a huge sale on June 13 as part of Brodhead’s City-Wide Rummage Sale.

Engine Train

Wagon train of old engine cases and cylinders headed for safekeeping.

With the hangar looking like a full-blown antique store, we opened shop amid the mess of our ongoing demolition efforts. The sale went well and we made a respectable amount to go towards the new museum.

Sale Day

Stay tuned as well continue to prepare our new building for temporary occupancy over the summer.
