The Greybull Museum of Flight and Aerial Firefighting

The Greybull Museum of Flight and Aerial Firefighting was started in the 1990's by Hawkins & Power's owners, Dan & Bob Hawkins and Gene and Duane Powers, in order to preserve the history of aerial firefighting.

The museum has two C-119's (Flying Box Cars) built around 1950 and a Twin Beach that have been loaned to the museum by the United States Forest Service.   There are also two PBY4Y's (Privateers) built around 1945, that have been loaned to the museum by Gene Powers & Jean Hawkins and Bob & Becky Hawkins.

A paleontology field school in the Bighorn Basin found an incredibly well-preserved fossil of an ancient anteater-like mammal this summer. The fossil is a Palaeanodon, a ground-dwelling insect eater the size of a cat that lived about 53-million years ago. Colorado State University Field School Instructor Kim Nichols discovered the skeleton and says the fossil is a very rare find because so much of the animal’s skeleton was found. Such small creatures are hardly ever discovered intact.  Its excellent condition is also unusual, Nichols says.
