IL-2 Arrival - Flying Heritage Collection

This just in!  Flying Heritage Collection at Paine Field in Everett, Washington, has just announced that its highly-anticipated IL-2 Shturmovick has arrived via ship at the Port of Tacoma early this (Feb. 2) morning!  I have not been able to get a time as to when it may arrive at the museum, however, they said it should be very soon.  I will keep you posted with news as it becomes available. 

They will be reassembling the aircraft in the hangar so visitors may be able to view its assembly process.  This is very exciting as it is the only IL-2 in the world that is in flying condition, out of 35,000 that were built during WWII.
