The WACO Air Museum’s Learning Center officially broke ground for its new $1.5 million learning facility last September.

Based in Indianapolis, American WACO Club President John Gerth presented the gift to the WACO Historical Society’s President John Schilling on Friday.

“We think it’s important to give back to aviation and hopefully this will continue the WACO legend. I’m sure you’ve mentioned the WACO history to all the students that come through. It’s important that we do that, that’s something important to us as a club,” Gerth said.
