“Designating the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum located at 4721 Aircraft Drive in Anchorage as the official headquarters for the State of Alaska's Centennial of Flight Celebration.”
Posted: March 23, 2009
On July 4th 2013 the State will mark the 100 year anniversary of the first powered flight in Alaska. To honor that occasion the State will hold the Centennial of Flight Celebration. HJR 9 establishes the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum as the focal point for those activities, programs and celebrations. The Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum's mission is to "preserve, display, and honor Alaska's aviation heritage." As such it is uniquely qualified and positioned to serve as the headquarters for this celebration. Establishing the Headquarters for the Centennial of Powered Flight in Alaska at the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum ensures a well-planned and organized celebratory program by a capable team of professionals for all Alaskans and visitors to Alaska.
