NAS Tillamook is a dream come true for me. I was stationed at NAS So. Weymouth, MA for a few years and it had the near identical blimp hangar as NAS Tillamook. The hangar at So. Weymouth has since been destroyed and lost to the ages. To see that blimp hangar again brought back a flood of memories of time spent on the flight line at So. Weymouth. Thanks to all who have preserved this great structure and a reminder of the past. All that is missing are the blimps that it used to house. Well worth the detour to see this fine exhibit of aircraft that are faithfully restored.

Assigned to the Air Force 689th Radar Squadron, Mt Hebo AFS (65-67). This long range radar station was part of the Air Defense Command and was located about 20 miles south of NAS Tillamook. I remember the two large blimp hangars at the NAS. They were easily seen from Hwy 101 going between Mt Hebo and Tillamook. We used to rent Cesna 172 a/c and flew from the NAS runway around the Tillamook area. The views were spectacular from Mt Hebo and from the air.

The the casual airplane enthusiast, Tillamook is pure delight! I've been to the Confederate AirForce Museum in Arizona, and seen the Reno Air Race display, but the Tillamook Air Museum is fabulous! Their collection of airworthy WWII aircraft, as well as WWI biplanes make it well worth the trip. My wife and I were extremely luck as during our visit, both the P-38 Lightning and P-47 Thunderbolt were flown and we got to see them take off and land. Especially thrilling was just listening to the P-47 start it's engine...the ground literally shook beneath us!

Hi, While travelling through Oregon on my way to visit friends in McMinnville about 4 years ago I accidently came across this museum. I was able to come back the next day and do a full tour of the museum. What can I say, it was a treat to see some lovely old aircraft preserved or in a state of restoration. I would certainly recommend a visit here. The layout was good as some aircraft are flyable and so are moved around to facilitate this. Highlight for me was the Spitfire Mk8 a genuine two seater, not the T.9's we have here in the UK and also the Martin Mauler which was in a poor state but was to be restored. A very rare airframe this one. Parking facilities, food in the canteen, gifts in the shop( I have a fridge magnet at home ), history of the Base and the signage leading you to it are all of a high standard. I intend to go back again at some time in the future. Derek D. Ramsay

I used to livein Oregon and went to this museum when ever I got the chance (which was often1) I got to whatch it grow into a wonderful collection and preservation point for avation history. Best thing is the Grumman Duck, very nice restoration. Next best is the hangar itself, no ,atter what the weather the aircraft are up front and personal. Deffinaetly a must see.

A MUST SEE...... Perhaps one of the most diverse (and often overlooked) museums in the Pacific Northwest. The Dirigible hanger itself captivates the visitor with the shear awesomeness of its construction and size. The aircraft on display are first class, and rare. If you love aviation, and are near the Oregon coast, you must take in this phenomenal piece of history.

Three years ago I had the god fortune to be in Tillamook visiting friends. One of the sites they took us to was the Tillamook Air Museum. I get very excited when ever I see the type of aircraft that you have. Your museum is undoutedly one of a kind. It is the kind of museum that would turn on any true lover of vintage and classic miliatary aircraft. When it was time for us to depart I had the feeling that I had seen the best of the best. But now I have found your web site and see that you have made it even better having added more aircraft. I am particularly pleased that you had the good fortune to get one of the most hard to find and by the way my favorate a P2V-5 Neptune. I am especially fond of them as I was a crew member and flew in them from 1956 through 1959 while attached to Patrol Squadron Twenty Two (VP22) at NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii. Both disastablished several years ago and for ever gone. Thank you for making an old Airdale feel good again. I will be making return visits to your museum in the near future. Thanks once again for an unforgetable experience.
