Heritage in Flight - WWII Aero Museum, Lincoln, IL
The museum is housed in a World War II German POW barracks that was in a POW camp near Macomb, Illinois called Camp Ellis. The contents of the HIF Museum include memorabilia and artifacts from all of the military conflicts dating back to World War I. On display are mementos donated by veterans and those on the home front. Various military branches have also donated many aircraft and other military vehicles that are located outside the museum. The rotating beacon at the Logan County Airport (AAA) was part of the lighted airway system route from St. Louis to Chicago. This was the route that Charles Lindbergh flew as an airmail pilot. This is an old museum that is being updated by volunteers (so donations are greatly appreciated) .
