ANN SHEPHERD -MILITARY & INDIAN AVIATION HERITAGE FOUNDATION

"I’m a pilot, I fly over Muskogee. I fly into Muskogee, I house a plane at Muskogee Davis. When you live here, you really take for granted all the things you have. I fly into a lot of airports in a lot of places, and I am telling you Muskogee Davis is one of the prettiest and nicest I’ve ever landed in," Shepherd said. "The city offers so much. To outside people, what Muskogee can offer is just immense."

The Military & Indian Aviation Heritage Foundation (MIA) has received its "official" 501(c)3 paperwork, therefore, making us available to receive funds for our WWII hangar renovation project located  Below.

BIZ BEAT — HELP FOUNDATION'S PLANS TAKE OFF

There stands at the Muskogee-Davis Regional Airport a World War II-era hangar, built mostly of wood. You don't really feel the sense of awe looking at it from the inside, nor even when you step inside the half-destroyed wing-offices — it's not until you're standing in the immense hangar itself that you really get a sense of what you're experiencing.

You see massive wood beams across the ceiling that were lifted up there by hand, fixed with bolts as big as your fist. You stand amid artwork that's been there for 70 years or more, depicting the airmen who visited the hangar. You really get a sense of the immense history of Muskogee-Davis Regional in a way that feels uniquely real.

It's one of three such hangars in the United States, I'm told, and now there are plans in place to save it and turn it into a living museum through the Military and Indian Aviation Heritage Foundation.
