Behind the Scenes

Welcoming Back the Lycoming R-680

Hiller Aviation Museum delivers our Lycoming R-680 radial engine after a two-year loan.  It’s located now in hangar 2.

Pictured L to R: Rich Eva and Barry Henning from Hiller.  On the right accepting the engine is Jerry Impellezzeri, president WOH.

New arrival - Bede BD-5

We recently obtained a Bede BD-5 from Gavilan College.  This was a single seat aircraft sold in kit form starting in the 1970s.  This is going to be a project for some of our teenage volunteers.

It’s most notable for its appearance in the James Bond movie Octopussy where while trying to evade a missile, James flies it through the quickly closing doors of the bad guys’ hangar.
