Montana is known as the birthplace of mountain flying. The Museum of Mountain Flying, located on the east end of the Missoula International Airport, preserves and interprets the history of mountain flying in general and the premier mountain flying service in Montana and in the entire Northern Rockiesfrom the late 1920s to the early 1970s.
The museum was established in 1993 by Dick Komberec, Stan Cohen, and Steve Smith. It has a number of model aircrafts in the museum hangar, from the Wright Brothers and a World War II B-24 heavy bomber to several modern planes.In order to continue the preservation effort, the museum is looking for any items related to the mountain-flying history in the region, such as vintage aircraft, memorabilia, artifacts, historical documents, personal narratives, photographs, diaries, film footage, newspaper stories, tape recordings, articles and books.
