The Anoka County Airport in Blaine, Minnesota is north of Minneapolis & St Paul. It is a commercial airport and has quite a number of vintage aircraft. I try and drive through and see what is there whenever I pass by. The vintage military stuff has come and gone over the years. The American Wings Air Museum was a great place to visit but had to close due to due to losing their space. Many of their aircraft are still at the airport though.
Every year the City of Blaine & the airport have aviation days, I got there the day after, while many of the old museum, aircraft were still out. There had also been some really bad storms the night before I got there, high winds, bad thunderstorms, and a couple small tornados. The aircraft you see which are parked all askew are due to the wind the night before moving them around. I am amazed none of them got flipped onto their backs.
Anyway, I took a bunch of pics. I tried to get serial numbers on some of them for those of you who keep track of such things.
First up is an old Beechcraft twin engine - sorry I do not remember the exact model & such.
