Groundbreaking held for new Fargo Air Museum wing
FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- A new hangar at the Fargo Air Museum honors two area aviation pioneers who died in crashes.
Groundbreaking ceremonies were held Saturday for the Beck-Odegaard wing. It is named for Gerry Beck and Bob Odegaard, the two men who helped establish the museum.
Beck died at an air show is Oshkosh, Wis., in 2007, and Odegaard was killed in 2012 while practicing for an air show in Valley City.
The new 100-foot-by-150-foot building will house several vintage planes, including a B-25 Mitchell that Beck donated during the museum's early years.
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
