Ronald Herman Restoration Building Completed
The Ronald Herman Restoration Hangar at the DeLand Naval Air Station Museum is completed. Our thanks to Ronald Herman of All Quality Products and family, Harry K. Stubbs Family, the City of DeLand and all volunteers who made the hangar building possible. The multi-purpose hangar is a great addition to the DNASM and the Restoration Crews are very appreciative to have such a great facility to work inside on multiple projects. Current projects include a Grumman TBF Avenger aircraft restoration, 1954 U.S. Army Jeep and the display of a Korean War Mash Helicopter. Veterans and Volunteers often mentor student volunteers who are interested in learning restoration skills. The building is also used for public briefings, tours and training. Recent visitors touring the museum complex have logged in from the local area, other Florida cities, 35 other states and 7 countries, including Canada, Brazil, Spain, England, Germany and Norway.

Breaking Ground. The TBF Avenger torpedo bomber serves as a backdrop for a groundbreaking ceremony July 26, 2012, for a new building to be constructed behind the Museum. The TBF will be one of the main occupants of the new building. Wielding shovels are Ron Herman, donor of the building; Mayor Bob Apgar; City Commissioners Charles Paiva, Phil Martin, Leigh Matusick and Vonzelle Johnson; City Manager Michael Pleus; City Engineer Keith Riger; Museum President Cal Lancaster; Museum Building Committee member Pete Lowenstein and Chairman Ed Carson; and Airport Manager Nick Landgraff.
