    The museum of Alaska Transportation and Industry is a non-profit organization and its mission is the collection, conservation, preservation, display and interpretation of artifacts related to Alaska's transportation and industrial history. Its aviation exhibits include aircraft from ultralights to a C-123. Several early aircraft engines are displayed, as are photographs and artifacts associated with Alaska's early flyers. Non-aviation exhibits include tractors, fire trucks, and other vehicles from the 1920s to 1960s; five diesel locomotives and 20 pieces of railroad rolling stock; mining equipment; antique steam and gas engines; and boats. MATI has recently completed a 5-year project of developing and moving to a new 10 acre site.
    MATI is located in Wasilla, Alaska (50 miles north of Anchorage). From Wasilla, travel about one mile north on the Parks Highway and turn left just after crossing the Alaska Railroad overpass. The museum is about 3/4 mile off of the highway and the route is well marked. It is next to the Wasilla Airport (no scheduled air service) and about 1/4 mile from the aircraft parking area.

I remember well the layout of your museum and I'm looking forward to my return summer of 2006. And, if you have an inkling to fly back in time, buy Amelia's Voice at John; and look for the world wide ad for Amelia's Voice in the UK published aviation magazine Sky Control.

I have a friend who has a 1961 Dodge NCA passenger truck, it appears in good condition and he said it still ran. If this is something you are interested in, I could send you some photos. I'm writing from Iliamna, Alaska.

Does anyone know the glide ratio of a Lockheed Electra. One pilot told me less the five hundred feet and it would be nose down. Does anyone have an idea? I am writing a book called "Amelia's Voice" about Amelia Earhart and Pancho Barnes in 1929 and beyond (see site at MSN About John Wariner or I also need another walk-through of a Lockheed Electra. Are there any cabins I can see on the museum circuit.

The Lockheed 10A Electra listed as being at the Museum of Transport and Industry in Alaska was purchased by me in mid 1997. Late in 1997, it was dimantled and shipped to it\\\'s new home in Auckland, New Zealand where it is presently being restored to pristine flying condition. PS Used state of Alabama to enable me to submit the form.
