Airplane Filling Station

We stopped in to take a look, but the owner was unfriendly. I get he has a business to run, but there is no need to be rude. If you go, stay outside.

John York, who runs the barber shop inside the airplane, has suffered from back pain for several years. Maybe he was just having a bad day!

The airplane building is now a Barber Shop run by John. I highly recommend stopping by for a haircut. It was like stepping back in time.

Refurbished and looking great, the gas station is now a barber shop. This summer they added a historical marker.
