Model airplanes take flight

Norman Freeman held an open house for his airplane museum on Thursday, Dec. 19, 2019, to debut his collection. He enjoys sharing the history of each plane with those who visit.

Norman Freeman, of Cokeville, has been collecting model airplanes since he was a young boy and decided to get serious about collecting in 1975. His wife, Charlotte opened her Little Church of Nativities and she didn’t have room for his airplanes. In 2016, Norm built his own museum next to the church to display his approximately 450 planes. One of the highlights of the museum is an airplane that was built by a 75-year-old man, to scale, a biplane, of the first fighter airplane bought by the United States Army. Norm is a veteran of the United States Air Force and loves sharing his collection with others. He finds it interesting to see visitors pick their favorite.
