Kirk and Diane Lindberg of Inner Grove Heights, MN donated their Velocity 1994 fixed gear aircraft to the museum on December 30, 2012. Kirk, Diane and their friend Jim were met by a group of EAA and museum members as they taxied up to the museum ramp door on Sunday.
Kirk and Diane shared stories about the 3,000 hours spent building their airplane, involvement with EAA, 1995 Osh Kosh Indy award, singing with the Roseville “Rosetones” quartet and traveling around the country with their “first born.”
The museum team wishes to express our gratitude to Kirk and Diane Lindberg for this impeccable airplane donation which will represent the general aviation “home built” segment. Thank You!
The museum team wishes to thank the Lindberg’s for their generous gift and hope you can all stop in to see the addition to the museum.
The Lindbergs have also shared a video of their final flight to the Fargo Air Museum with the music of their big band group playing in the background.
