Secrets of Stealth

Featuring the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk “Lone Wolf” Stealth Fighter, this exhibit will bring together planes that pioneered stealth technology and educate the public about their roles in reconnaissance and conflict. Your support will restore the F-117, which arrived at the Museum in 2023. The F-117 was the first operational aircraft to be designed with stealth technology, and the “Lone Wolf” is currently the only one on display in the Pacific Northwest.

The Douglas Marvels: How the DC-3 &
C-47 Changed the World

Our exhibit concept integrates experiential learning resources and interactive technologies that share the journeys of our museum’s two Douglas aircraft: the civilian DC-3 (part of United Airline’s original fleet) and the military C-47 (with service on D-Day, Operation Market Garden, and the Berlin Airlift). Your support will restore the C-47 and help us build a world-class exhibit.


There are many exciting projects waiting in the wings, but we need your help to bring these pillars of aviation history back to their original glory. We are currently working on an F-5D Skylancer with the C-47 Skytrain, F-117 Nighthawk, and Catalina waiting in the wings.

Summer Camp Scholarship Fund

Evergreen’s Galaxy Exploration and Aviation camp curriculum has a great mix of classroom lessons, hands-on activities, experiments, and onsite field trips to help students visualize and grasp the concepts being taught.

Students often comment on how amazing it is to experience space and aviation history in person. Campers love the fun-filled week of exploration and learning.

Help us reach our goal of funding 150 scholarships for underprivileged kids to attend an aerospace summer camp. Fund a full scholarship for $250 or give what you can. Every dollar helps ignite a child’s passion for aerospace innovation and discovery.
