Gregory: Lone Star Flight Museum Sustained 'Substantial' Damage From Ike

Crews Still Assessing Storm's Impact

The following is a message from Larry Gregory, president of the Lone Star Flight Museum in Galveston, TX concerning damage the museum sustained from this weekend's onslaught from Hurricane Ike.

All museum staff are safe following passage of Hurricane IKE.

Damage to the museum is substantial. The extent of the damage has yet to be assessed by LSFM officials and staff. As soon as the preliminary assessment has been made we will post information here. As soon as possible we will let you know about reorganization and reopening.

Prior to IKE’s arrival, pilots were able to fly the following aircraft out of harm’s way: B-17, B-25, DC-3,P-47, F6F, F4U, SBD, AT-11, P-6 and the F8F.

We want to thank all of our friends and supporters for their thoughts and prayers.

ANN will update this story as more information becomes available.
