While there is much unclear at this time, but we have from reliable sources that the Military Aviation Museum Collection of Virginia Beach, Virgina is being sold off by museum owner Jerry Yagen.

Given the incredible size of his collection it is extremely unlikely that a single individual or organization would take the entire collection together, but it looks like Rod Lewis of Lewis Air Legends in Texas will be acquiring some of the choicest warbirds.

The reasons for the sale and the ultimate fate of specific planes are not known to us with enough certainty to report at this time, but as soon as we know for sure, you will too.

UPDATE: The first two confirmed sales from the collection have occurred and The reasons for the sale have recently come to light.

  4. who owns the mosquito plane now, is it a museum or private non-public viewing hands??? flew 350 hp Beechcraft, my wife and I were both IFR certified, flew 100 hrs per month–what a wonderful experience to have a woman pilot flying by your side–we were a team, she would be the pilot at times, I would be the navigator. I remember one time on landing, I verbally went thru the checklist, forgot to put the wheels down, ten feet above the runway, she calmly said put the wheels down, dearest!!!! jpmiller, MD
