Interview with Museum President, BGen Mike Aguilar, on his Career and Relocating the Historic USMC Aviation Museum
Brigadier General Michael Aguilar, president of the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum, updates Jason Wood and his audience on the status of the move from MCAS Mirarmar to Great Park in Irvine, CA.
The museum has been offered the opportunity to relocate to Great Park, Irvine, California-the former MCAS El Toro. In response, USMC leadership has indicated that they will keep the collection intact and stored at MCAS Miramar for a very limited period of time to give the museum’s foundation the opportunity to raise sufficient funds to prepare the new facility and move the collection.
