After many years of fundraising and hard work the Pasco Naval Air Station has been restored and will be the 1st of it's kind in the Tri-Cities Aviation Museum.

Did you know the Tri-Cities Airport was originally the Naval Air Station (NAS) Pasco? In 1941, our community was transformed into the third largest Navy training base in the United States.
