BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The Heritage Flight Museum will soon depart from the Bellingham International Airport.

The museum has announced it will be moving its collection of antique aircraft to the Skagit Regional Airport starting later this month.

The museum’s program director Kate Simmons says the Port of Bellingham is focused on commercial aviation and having an air museum is no longer a high priority.

She says they’ll be able to do more things at the Skagit Airport like hold events and weddings.

The museum will hold its final monthly fly day in Bellingham on Saturday, November 16.

After that, museum staff will begin moving the entire collection.

They hope to hold a grand opening at the Skagit Airport during the Tulip Festival in April.
