By Cory Graff Flying Heritage Collection

The Flying Heritage Collection is the private collection of philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder Paul G. Allen. The FHC’s beautifully restored warbirds and vehicles help visitors examine some of the great technological advancements of the 20th Century.

The FHC hangar is located at Paine Field in Everett and is open to the public. At this local institution, visitors can see some of the rarest and most iconic warplanes in the world. Periodically, these planes fly in public displays, at Paine Field and at local aviation events. For more information, visit

In cooperation with HeraldNet, the FHC is starting a weekly blog called Flight Paths. The blog will highlight some of the aircraft in the FHC collection, discuss the histories of these artifacts, and examine their maintenance and operations.
