Maine Air Museum
Founded in 2000 and located on Bangor International Airport, the Maine Air Museum is dedicated to preserving Maine aviation history. It houses a large collection of aviation related artifacts and memorabilia and features stories and information about Maine aviation pioneers, including one who became an astronaut. One display features a piece of the balloon that a Maine-born aviator used to set the world record for the highest flight and to capture the first image of the earth's curvature. Other displays explore military crash sites in Maine as well as the disappearance of the White Bird, one of the greatest aviation mysteries.
