Evergreen Appoints Director Of Operations At New Space Museum

Ken Till Spent Over 40 Years In Aerospace Industry

The Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum announced Thursday that Aerospace Industry Veteran, Ken Till, has been appointed to the position of Director of Operations at the recently-opened Evergreen Space Museum. 

Till is a retired Aerospace Engineer of 40+ years. Throughout his career, he worked for Aerojet General with a focus on Titan II engines and Polaris engines. He also worked for Lockheed Research on the ablative heat-shields for MOL and Mercury Programs. He also worked for United Aircraft/Pratt & Whitney on the solid rocket boosters for the Titan IIC, Titan IV, RL10 LOX-LH2 upper stage(s) and did NASA tech support.

Till has degrees in Physical Chemistry and Metallorgy. He has served as a docent at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum for the last 2.5 years.

"We are excited to have Ken Till lead the operational efforts at the new space museum. His expertise in the field of aerospace is a welcome addition to our team," said Delford M. Smith, Chairman of the Board for the museum.

The Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum is best known as the home of the world's largest wooden flying boat, the H-4 Hercules "Spruce Goose." In addition, there are more than 150 historic aircraft, spacecraft and exhibits on display -- including a SR-71 Blackbird, a Titan II SLV Missile and a Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat.

The museum also features artwork, traveling displays, the Spruce Goose Café, the Cosmo Café, the Rotors, Wings & Things store, the Right Stuff Store and Oregon's largest IMAX 3D theater.

The facility is located at 500 NE Captain Michael King Smith Way, across the highway from the McMinnville Airport and about three miles southeast of McMinnville, OR on Highway 18. The space museum opened June 6.
