Many thanks to Steve Martz and all the crew for their hard work getting the new lights installed in the main hangar. It looks spectacular! See for yourself. Better yet, come on down to Geneseo for a visit.
Museum News Update 1 Dec 10 - Austin Hancock
Hey all! Hope everybody is keeping warm and safe today, we got about 3-4 inches here in Geneseo today. Despite the inclement weather, a few of the guys still showed up today and took care of business. So here's the latest...
C-47- Now inside the hangar, pretty soon we'll begin the winter maintenance regimen.
B-17- Also in from the cold, the '17 was getting her props off today.
Hangar - Steve M's lights are holding up nicely and really helping us as we work out in the hangar! Today, Super Dave was busy adding a piece to the hangar-door winch that will help keep it from winding incorrectly.
Swanson Hall - Has been cleaned and is now ready for the Annual Christmas Party next Thursday! 8-)
We have been scheming quite a bit lately, pooling our ideas together. Stay tuned for details to come in the next few weeks...

Founded in 1994, the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group Museum is dedicated to the restoration, preservation, display, and flight of aircraft of the World War II and Korean War eras, as well as the recognition of all United States Military personnel for their service and sacrifice.
The 1941 Historical Aircraft Group was established in 1994 by an initial band of 250 aviation enthusiasts. The primary goal of the Group was to continue with the traditional airshow held on the turf strip at the Geneseo airport and to highlight the aircraft of the past with a focus on World War II aviation.
The first Warbird Gathering airshow was held in September of 1994. Each year since then, the Airshow has continued to grow in aircraft participation and attendance. This year's Geneseo Air Show will be held in July at the Geneseo airport.
In an effort to make the Group more visible, the first Memories USO Show was held at the Geneseo Armory in 1994. The show has become a favorite event for members and guests. The Annual Memories USO Show is now held during the Airshow in the 1941 Aircraft Group Hangar at the Geneseo Airport and is enjoyed by all who attend.
In the Spring of 2001, the Group was granted a Provisional Museum Charter by the New York State Board of Regents. The group's Board of Trustees was increased to five members and our name was officially changed to the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group Museum, Inc. At the same time, the name Hangar Tales was adopted for the Group's newsletter. The 1941 Historical Aircraft Group Museum is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organized for educational purposes.
Membership Milestone: 903 Members as of 01 May 10.
