Tyler Museum Hosts Grand Opening

    The grand re-opening of a Tyler aviation museum tomorrow is promising to give visitors once in a lifetime thrills. The newly renovated Historic Aviation Memorial Museum, or HAMM, is holding a grand opening tomorrow. With the help of East Texas pilots you can not only look at vintage aircraft, but fly in one. You can catch a ride on a Huey helicopter, or a vintage world war two T-6 Warbird.

     "The lone star wing is flying in their world war two trainers we have several other unique airplanes flying in, there's nothing like a Warbird flight to add to your list of things that you've done in your life" says T-6 pilot Steve Dean.

    The museum's grand opening with run from 10 am until 4 p-m Saturday, and it is free to the public.

     Rides on the Huey range from $150 for the front seat, to $100 for the back seat. Rides in the T-6 Warbird are $350.
