Join us on Saturday April 1st from 11:00am-12:30 at the Tillamook Air Museum for the Ribbon Cutting, Christening & open cockpit of the Tillamook Air Museum’s newest exhibit, a B-52G Stratofortress cockpit! A Veteran of the Cold War, Vietnam War, and Gulf War, this bomber served America with pride for over 30 years! Our special guest for the event is Sherry Lowe. In 1964, Sherry was bestowed the title of “Miss Bangor” (Maine). As a part of her crown, Sherry was tasked with Christening a B-52 Stratofortress at Dow Air Force Base in Maine, the “City of Bangor.” Coincidentally, this is the same B-52 that the Museum has been working hard to restore this past year. Now 59 years later, Sherry is joining us at the Museum to “re-Christen” her airplane, “Osiris” (the name given the aircraft during the Gulf War era). Come on out and join in on the fun, climb through our B-52 Stratofortress cockpit, get your picture taken inside, and talk to Veterans who served aboard this magnificent aircraft!
