Watch the skies this summer and listen for the throb of radial engines when Herman flies back to Wisconsin. Join us at the Mitchell Gallery to learn about the imminent return of one of Wisconsin’s legendary aviation symbols, North Central Airlines’ Herman the Duck. Herman will be emblazoned on the sides of a classic Douglas DC-3, N33632, built in 1941 and one of only four remaining DC-3s out of 32 once operated by North Central. We’ll get the story from members of the Aviation Heritage Center of Wisconsin, whose museum at Sheboygan County Memorial Airport will be Herman’s new nest.
Restoring an aircraft of N33632’s age, size, and complexity is no small task but that’s not all the Center does. Historic displays like a military antiaircraft target drone recovered from Lake Michigan and a broad range of educational activities keyed toward youth make it a “must see” for all aviation enthusiasts.
