WAAAM! A Journey to Hood River, OR

My next stop was the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum (or WAAAM).

The drive was nice and the views along the way were stupendous.

This museum is open seven days a week and from 9:00 to 5:00.  That makes it easy to plan a trip to.

Inside is a gift shop and greeting area.

There is a video shown inside the museum where you can watch this aircraft fly off a hotel roof.

Inside the hangars provide a huge area of displays, both of aircraft and cars.

While I was browsing the aisles of cars a roar from an airplane engine came through the roof and I stepped outside to see that the 99th aircraft to be added to the exhibit had arrived:

The area around the museum is a delight for the eyes and the people of the area are very friendly.  There are many interesting shops and restaurants, as well.

Next week is a special meet at WAAAM where there will be cars and aeroplanes from all over coming to the museum as well as thousands of visitors.
