Madras gets air museum

PORTLAND (AP) — The Tillamook Air Museum is leaving the coast.

The museum located in a massive WWII blimp hangar off Highway 101 houses vintage aircraft owned by Erickson Group, and it attracts about 70,000 visitors annually.

The family-owned company recently bought an air-tanker operation based at the Madras Municipal Airport, and plans to move its aircraft to the Central Oregon city by 2016.
