Airport facility offers glimpse of South’s aviation past

Published 12:15 am Saturday, November 10, 2012

Walk through the front door of the Southern Hertiage Foundation Air Museum and step into history.

Wander through the displays of model aircraft, photos of Mississippi pilots and learn some of the state’s and the South’s aviation past. Walk in the hangar and gaze at Charlotte’s Chariot II, a P-51 Mustang painted to reproduce the fighter flown by Cary Salter of Brandon in World War II, or the Beechcraft Beech 18 executive airplane that flew business executives to appointments long before private jets became popular.
