As the COVID-19 pandemic continues we want you to know that your PMC Health Care team is here to support you by adding services, like: The PMC Greeter, Acute Respiratory Clinic (separate entrance) and opening up to new patients.

We are also changing the way we deliver current services, for example: Virtual visits and increased sanitation, meaning we are able to provide you continued care.

We believe the services we offer keep our patients out of the Emergency Departments and Hospitals, doing our part to make sure that critical patients have access to the care they need.

Give us a call, we’re here to help make sure you are getting the care you need, when you need it. Our trained and dedicated call center and advice staff are here to answer your questions.

Thank you for your continued trust in PMC during this time.

(Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum - 08/11/17 4:47 PM)

Addressing media coverage on the recent sale of two aircraft, the North American P-51D "Mustang" and the Goodyear FG-1D "Corsair":

The Mustang and the Corsair were owned by the Michael King Smith Foundation (Foundation) and were among the Foundation assets that The Falls Event Center, LLC (The Falls) acquired in the 2016 Foundation bankruptcy case. The Foundation and The Falls are separate organizations from the Museum.

The aircraft were among the artifacts identified in a Letter of Intent submitted to the court during the 2016 Foundation bankruptcy case. The Falls acquired nine aircraft from the Foundation, including the Mustang and Corsair. At no time did the Museum own these aircraft. The aircraft remained on loan to the Museum after The Falls acquired the aircraft.

The Letter of Intent was used to memorialize the parties' intentions in the interim, which would then be addressed more comprehensively in operating agreements. We have agreements that are reduced to writing, are consistent with the Letter of Intent, are enforceable, and under which both parties are performing.

The Museum owns 82 of the 140 aircraft and artifacts in the collection. Other aircraft are on loan from various entities, specifically, 35 from the United States Government, 15 from corporations, 6 from individuals, and 2 from private museums. If an owner decides to remove its aircraft from the Museum's display, it can do so.

The recent departure of the Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress, owned by the Collings Foundation (unrelated to The Falls), was coincidental and had been planned since their purchase of this aircraft in 2015 as part of the Evergreen Vintage bankruptcy (a separate for profit corporation previously owned by Delford Smith). No other aircraft are scheduled to leave in the near future. In 2020, the loan on the Messerschmitt Me-262a expires; at this point it is unclear if the loan will be renewed.

The Museum is not standing still. It is working to add new exhibits to its collection. Just last year, the Museum added a Fairchild Republic A-10 "Thunderbolt II" (Warthog) to its collection and we are extremely excited for the delivery of our newest acquisitions this fall: a General Dynamics F-16 "Fighting Falcon," a General Dynamics F-111 "Aardvark," and a Panavia "Tornado." Other new acquisitions are in the works.

Unfortunately, the Museum is still sometimes confused with--and is thought to be a part of--Delford Smith's Evergreen family of for profit companies. That is not the case. The Museum is a nonprofit, public organization registered in the State of Oregon and is led by a volunteer Board of Directors. As a nonprofit organization, the Museum is not owned by any one person or corporation. The Museum cannot be bought, sold, or owned. The Falls is not the Museum's owner. The Falls is simply the Museum's landlord on the Space Museum building, which is one of the three buildings the Museum occupies and uses. The Museum has leased the Space Building since its completion in 2008 and will continue to do so.

The Museum is here for the long term and will continue to operate as we have always done. We look forward to continued growth and our upcoming events, such as our Eclipse Viewing Party on August 21st and our 3rd Annual Gala on November 4th.

We hope this clears up any confusion caused by recent media coverage, and look forward to seeing you at the Museum.

Despite the issues published in the recent Oregonian article, the Museum is not at risk. While it is true that Steve Down through his company, The Falls Event Center (TFEC), owns the space museum building, the Museum continues to lease that facility allowing us to operate our business, as we have always done since its completion in 2008.

It is also true that TFEC acquired nine aircraft from the Michael King Smith Foundation last summer during the Foundation’s bankruptcy proceedings. The Foundation was a separate organization from the Museum and was formerly our landlord for the space museum building and Waterpark (prior to the expiration of the Museum’s lease on the Waterpark building in December 2016). Recently, TFEC sold two of the aircraft that were on loan to the Museum, the Goodyear FG-1D Corsair and the North American P-51 Mustang. After speaking directly with Mr. Down, the Museum has learned that TFEC has no plans to sell any of their seven remaining aircraft, including the Douglas DC-3A, despite recent rumors claiming otherwise.

The recent departure of the Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress, owned by the Collings Foundation (unrelated to Mr. Down and TFEC), was coincidental and had been planned since their purchase of this aircraft in 2015. As we stated previously, while most of our collection is made up of aircraft and artifacts owned by the Museum (82 of 140), many are on loan from various entities. Specifically, 35 from the U.S. Government, 15 from multiple corporations, 6 from various individuals, and 2 from private museums. If an owner decides to remove their aircraft from the Museum’s display, they can do so. Currently, no other aircraft are scheduled to leave in the near future. In 2020, the loan on the Messerschmitt Me-262a expires; at this point it is unclear if the loan will be renewed.

Unfortunately, the Museum is still confused with—and was thought to be a part of—Del Smith’s Evergreen family of companies. However, as a nonprofit organization, the Museum is not owned by any one person or corporation. We are a public organization registered in the State of Oregon that belongs to the public at-large, led by a volunteer Board of Directors, and we cannot be bought or sold. TFEC is simply our landlord, not our owner.

The Museum is here for the long term and we look forward to continued growth. In addition to hosting awesome events, like our Eclipse Viewing Party on August 21st and our 3rd Annual Gala on November 4th, we are extremely excited for the delivery of our newest acquisitions this fall: a General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon, a General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark, and a Panavia Tornado.

We hope this clears up the confusion caused by recent media coverage, and look forward to seeing you at your Museum.
