The Hangar at 743 Museum houses the private collection of Warbirds owned by David Prescott, Navy veteran and founder of the Prescott Foundation. Prescott’s fondness for aviation began as a hobby when he was a child. He made models with his father and eventually become a pilot and later a flight instructor.
