VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A Virginia Beach man is selling his historic plane collection and may close the museum that houses them.
Gerald Yagen owns the Military Aviation Museum on Princess Anne Road near Pungo. He says he no longer has the money to keep his collection of WWI and WWII era planes, billed as one of the world's largest.
So far, he said he's sold two planes: a Boeing B-17 bomber and a Focke-Wulf 190, a single seat German plane. Both were used during World War II.
Yagen said he doesn't know how many planes he owns. Some in Virginia Beach have never been exhibited. He says he has others around the world that won't make it to Virginia Beach.
He said only nine groups visited the museum in Virginia Beach last week.
