Wings of the North operates a museum on Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. The Wings of the North Air Museum currently houses three award winning aircraft in addition to others. The award winners are a P-51D Mustang named Sierra Sue II that saw action in Europe during World War II, an AT-6 Texan, and a Boeing N2S-1 Stearman that was used for training at the MSP Naval Air Station during WWII and was flown by future President George Herbert Walker Bush. All the planes have been beautifully restored. In addition to our award winning aircraft, the museum also has a TBM-3E Avenger, F4U-4 Corsair and many other aircraft that come and go throughout the year. The museum also features aircraft engines, an ejection seat, a WWII Jeep built by Ford, an AT-11 top turret, and other displays.
The museum also houses our library of aviation and military books and videos. This is a lending library so all items are available for use for 30 days at a time and the list of library items can be accessed through the Library Thing widget below.
