Berlin Wall in McMinnville

Location: Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum

Parts of the Hinterlandmauer

 

From the first aircrafts of the Wright brothers to a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, flying with double the speed of sound: In the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon, there is something for everyone, including fun and games for children.

In the exhibition area Military Aircraft/Transport i.a. there is a Gooney Bird, one of the typical transport aircrafts, which were used for the Berlin Airlift. Presumably, therefore a monument with parts from the Hinterlandmauer was set up here.

  1. Thank you for adding my photo to your interesting gallery. If you don’t already have one, I also have a photo of a piece of the wall at the Reagan Library, Simi, California. https://www.flickr.com/photos/rgtmum/8091123623/in/photolist-dqW9wN-dqW8KA-dqW9eW-dqVYJ6-dqVYxk-dqW8pN-dqW8zG-dqW8i3-dqW873-djZ8ar . I believe there is also a piece at the Nixon Library, Yorba Linda, California.
    The Evergreen Aviation Museum is also famous for Howard Hughes’ Spruce Goose. It is a very interesting museum.

    • Thank you. We already have photos of Berlin Wall at Reagan and Nixon library but feel free to upload more 😉
