The Collings foundation has reportedly reached an agreement with the Evergreen Museum in McMinnville, Oregon to purchase many of the assets of the museum and make it a viable entity going forward.

It’s reported that Rob Collings, Executive Director, said that the organization has been working with the museum for some time to find a solution to issues that arose when Evergreen Air Freight declared bankruptcy. He said there was a "huge amount of debt levied against assets" at the museum. The general aviation manufacturers Association has published the 2015 second quarter aircraft shipment data. The numbers improved over first quarter, but are down compared to previous year. Industry airplane shipments fell 9.1 percent for the first half of the year, and airplane billings declined 4.6 percent, compared to the same period a year ago. Rotorcraft shipments decreased, from 502 units to 447 units, and billings were down an estimated 16.8 percent to for the first six months. The number of piston airplanes delivered fell 11.8 percent. Turboprop shipments also declined 9.9 percent. Business jet manufacturers shipped 305 airplanes compared to 318 airplanes last year. The U.S. Marine Corps' F-35B Lightning II aircraft reached initial operational capability on July 31 with a squadron of 10 F-35Bs ready for world-wide deployment. Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121, based in Yuma, Arizona, is the first squadron in military history to become operational with an F-35 variant, following a five-day Operational Readiness Inspection, which concluded July 17.
