Myrtle Beach Opens Air Force Exhibit

The City of Myrtle Beach, S.C., on Monday opened a new permanent Air Force museum exhibit in the city’s recreation center on the grounds of the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. The Web site of Myrtle Beach TV news station WMBF reported that a ribbon-cutting ceremony took place that same day. The air base closed in 1993. “A lot of people that served on this base retired here and they really appreciate the fact that we’re remembering all of their hard work,” said Diane Moskow-McKensie, a senior planner for the city. She added, “We don’t want people to ever forget that this was an Air Force base in Myrtle Beach.” The exhibit was in the works for three years.
