DescriptionOperated by the Cibola County Historical Society, the Western New Mexico Aviation Heritage Museum honors the pioneer aviators who flew the then-remote Amarillo to Los Angeles stretch of the Midcontinental Airway, established by Charles Lindbergh for Transcontinental Air Transport. The route was equipped with generator-powered beacon towers spaced approximately every 10 to 15 miles to aid pilots flying mail delivery planes at night. A 30-minute guided walking tour of the restored airway beacon at the Grants-Milan Airport is offered Sat. 9-1; from I-40, take exits 79 or 81 to Airport Road.
