We will be following restoration projects worldwide and the latest in cutting-edge military aviation technology. We are also excited to bring you the latest from the scale modeling world! Let's face it, no matter the size, a warbird is a warbird. The stories these airplanes tell are like no other and we can not wait to bring them to you.

WARBIRD RADIO – The Naval Air Museum Barbers Point has been evicted by the Hawaii Department of Transportation. Museum Director Brad Hayes and long time supporter (and former resident) Alan Miller fill us in on the details of this developing situation. QUICK LINK: Naval Air Museum Barbers Point QUICK LINK: Museum’s Facebook Page – SEE THE DOCUMENT TRAIL HERE QUICK LINK: GoFundMe For Museum’s Legal Defense HDOT RESPONSE: Hello Matt, Thank you for the opportunity to respond to your inquiry. The HDOT Airports Division manages, operates and maintains the airports system in conformity with State and Federal laws, requirements, and rules as well as established policies and procedures to maintain a safe and efficient global air transportation organization. The Hawaii Museum of Flying (HMF) has had a 30-day Revocable Permit at Kalaeloa Airport since August 2000 to use a 901 square foot building and an area of 1,522 square feet of land. The tenant was provided a letter of revocation and notice to vacate dated Sept. 17, 2019 stating concerns with general liability coverage, compliance with laws, and the considerable unauthorized area being occupied by unpermitted exhibition pieces, which adds up to approximately 173,718 square feet or 3.9 acres. The HDOT Airports Division and its leadership has repeatedly requested the necessary documentation regarding insurance and fluid spill violations, however the HMF did not furnish the documentation until after the letter of revocation was received. HMF has been provided multiple opportunities to correct the unauthorized use of land outside its permitted area and it has failed to comply. HDOT leadership appreciates the military and its personnel and just like in the military rules and regulations must be followed. The notice to vacate stands, however HDOT has continued a dialogue with the HMF leadership on the matter. All the best, Tim Sakahara Hawaii Department of Transportation, Public Affairs CONTACT: firstname.lastname@example.org
