In our last week in Oregon, we used our Harvest Hosts membership to stay at the Erickson Aircraft Collection in Madras, Oregon. Harvest Hosts is a network of wineries, breweries and distilleries, farms, and attractions that invite RVers to visit and stay overnight for free with no hookups. The membership is a reasonable price, and it is understood that staying for free means patronizing the vendor (buy a bottle of wine, do a wine tasting, visit the attraction, etcetera). Since I love seeing aircraft collections, warbirds, and cool planes, it wasn’t a hardship to visit the Erickson Aircraft Collection.
The Erickson Aircraft Collection used to be housed at the Tillamook Air Museum in Tillamook, Oregon, so I’m sure I have seen some of these planes before.
There are vehicles around the perimeter of the building, but these are the ones that most caught my eye.
Unfortunately, the P-38 Lightning and the B-17 were not on-site, but there were plenty of airplanes and warbirds to drool over.
