The aircraft in his collection are being moved from Arizona airports in Casa Grande, Falcon Field, Glendale, Wickenburg and also Chino, California where many have been stored while during the the process of choosing a facility.

Buckeye Municipal Airport was selected because it offers room to display existing aircraft and also has space available for future growth.
