John Sessions loves planes, history, flying, technology, innovation, learning and sharing. He’s expecting his Historic Flight Foundation will encompass all of those loves when it opens March 5 at the Kilo-6 Air Museum on Paine Field (PAE) in Washington State, according to a story in teh Snohomish County Business Journal.
Named for the former Kilo-6 taxiway where he built his first hangar last year, the facility features some of the world’s most famous aircraft from 1927 to 1957, an era Sessions believes was a time of tremendous innovative thinking, engineering and development in the realm of aviation. “Those years may seem an arbitrary choice, but it’s the golden age of aviation. It’s also particularly meaningful that 1927 was the year young Charles Lindbergh was the first to fly the Atlantic Ocean and 1957 marked the first flight of the Boeing 707 jet airliner,” he said.
