The Oregon Aviation Historical Society’s mission is to “collect, preserve, and restore Oregon related aviation artifacts for interpretive and educational display to insure the preservation of Oregon’s rich aviation heritage for future generations.” The museum houses some very unique pieces in their hangars as well as being the home to the Oregon Aviation Hall of Fame. The museum houses more than 5 home built aircraft that exhibit the exhilaration story of experimental aircraft and their impact on American avation history. Aside from the finished aircraft on display, the organization is constantly working on new restorations. For those looking for volunteer opportunities, the Oregon Aviation Historical Society is constantly looking for skilled volunteers. Be sure to swing by and check out everything they have to offer or visit their social media channels for some great updates! An important note, private tours can be made available on request. As usual, we recommend checking the museum’s website hours prior to traveling long distances for a visit. Check out the video introduction from their youtube channel below!!

USS Blueback (SS-581)
Portland, Oregon
The ship was decommissioned in October 1990. It was opened to the public in May 1994 at OMSI, and is on permanent display at OMSI’s dock on the east side of the Willamette River. Visitors can climb aboard the sub and experience what life was like for the 85 men who lived and worked on the boat. 40-minute tours occur throughout the day, and include a behind-the-scenes look at how a submarine dives, produces its own electricity and fresh water, and stays submerged for months at a time. Highlights of the tour include a look at the engine room, the radio room, the control room and attack center, the crew quarters, and the escape and torpedo-loading trunk. A more technical tour of the sub takes place on the first Sunday of every month. The purpose of the two-hour “Guided Tech Tour,” guided by an ex-submariner, is to give visitors a comprehensive technical look into the workings of the submarine. Kids can also spend the night onboard the sub, as part of OMSI’s camp-in program. Students from elementary through middle school sleep in the crews’ bunks, after they explore the control room, peer through a periscope, check out the engine room and set a course to carry out a top-secret mission. The Blueback also features a volunteer HAM radio station (W7SUB) operated by retired Navy veterans. They communicate with other HAM radio operators throughout the world. OMSI hosts two memorials for submariners on eternal patrol. One is a permanent memorial plaque for submarine veterans of WWII and is located at the entrance to the ramp leading to the dock. The other is the propeller (screw) from the Blueback, surrounded by 67 bricks, each engraved with the name and date of a lost U.S. submarine. It is located on the river walkway in front of the museum. In 2014 OMSI’s sub volunteers were honored with an award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals (Oregon and SW Chapter) for their tireless dedication.
