The museum is housed in a World War II German POW barracks that was in a POW camp near Macomb, Illinois called Camp Ellis. The contents of the HIF Museum include memorabilia and artifacts from all of the military conflicts dating back to World War I. On display are mementos donated by veterans and those on the home front. The rotating beacon at the Logan County Airport (3LC) was part of the lighted airway system route from St. Louis to Chicago. This was the route that Charles Lindbergh flew as an airmail pilot.

Flew into Heritage in Flight Museum on 7/3. The museum is small and resembles more of a personal collection than a museum. The aircraft have been outside for some time and are getting quite weathered as was the hanger sign. The uniform displays in the hanger needed a cleaning and were difficult to view. I have been there once and would not make a return trip.

Went back on a day when the musuem was open. There is a wealth of information, many models and great staff. Would recommend it for a nice little day trip.

Good little out door display. Was not there on a day when the Musuem was open but was glad to see a/c were accessable.

I am looking for any information on the : Aero Thrust Engine company of Chicago Illinois. The engine I own is a 2 cylinder, 2 stroke, horizontally opposed and is air cooled. Using the spark plugs and magneto system as a gauge, the vintage would be 1920's. My hope is to obtain specifications, parts source, operating manuals and the like. Any information would be great! Thank you

I don't really have any comments, what I'd like is some information on how I can obtain some pictures of the O-6 Cardox, O-10, O-11A, and O-llB crash trucks.
