We received some very welcome information from Everett, Washington today with news that the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum is due to open again in the near future following a three-year hiatus in operations. Now under new ownership, the magnificent collection hopefully has a much brighter future ahead of it than seemed likely just a short while ago, when the wholesale dispersement of its artifacts, gathered by the late Paul G. Allen, seemed imminent. While present details about the when and the how of the collection’s re-opening remain somewhat sparse at present, a terse press release issued this morning hints that the museum will feature some new additions for visitors to see. One can hope! We look forwards to further information, and will let our readers know more when it arrives.

ADDENDUM: We have just learned that the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum will be open from April through September for the next two years, after which the entire collection will move to the new owner’s facility in Arkansas.
