Work to begin on Beck-Odegaard Wing addition

FARGO – A groundbreaking ceremony for the Fargo Air Museum’s Beck-Odegaard Wing addition will be held at 10 a.m. Aug. 10.

Gerry Beck and Robert Odegaard were founding members of the museum and believed in the dream of a rotating flying museum.

The new building will display the B-25 Mitchell that Beck donated in the early years with hopes to create an interactive diorama to share the World War II history and stories of the Doolittle Raiders.

A 2013 Ford Boss 302 Mustang raffle is also currently being held to raise funds for the addition. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at the Fargo Air Museum, 1609 19th Ave. N.
