Liberty Aviation Museum Director Jeff Sondles addressing a tour group from the Catawba Island Club on Saturday.
The Liberty Aviation Museum, adjacent to the Erie-Ottawa International Airport in Port Clinton, opened in July of 2012. A year and a half later, the museum is already undergoing a major expansion.
The hangar being constructed behind the existing buildings will house the Ford Tri-Motor restoration project and visiting historical aircraft, and will be the winter exhibit area for the Museum’s fully restored PT boat. This will allow more space in the existing part of the Museum for new exhibits and various events. Two historical organizations have recently contacted the Museum about being the permanent home for their collections.
