Aircraft museum to open in Idaho
REXBURG, Idaho -- Officials are hoping a new aircraft museum takes flight and draws tourists to this eastern Idaho town.
The 18,000-square-foot Legacy Flight Museum at the Rexburg Airport houses nine vintage planes from World War II and the Korean War, a Russian jet from Cold War, and a replica World War I plane.
Far from being relics, all of them are flightworthy, including a WWII P-51 Mustang fighter. The P-51, one of 150 in the world that can still fly, is owned by John Bagley, who, with his brother Terry, built the hangar.
An air show is planned in June to showcase the aircraft.
"All of the airplanes in this hanger will be flying at that air show," said Terry Bagley said. "These airplanes all fly. They've all been restored. They're beautiful. It's not a static display."
