ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Thronateeska Heritage Center is adding to their collection of historical items.
    

The museum is now housing the artifacts from the Royal Air Force Albany Committee.
Thousands of British Royal Air Force cadets who trained in Albany during World War 2.
The collection includes items such as a yearbook of the pilots and their instructors.

"We were honored to host these British pilots and I think it's very important,” said Alex La Pierre, Thronateeska Programs Manager. “It shows our connection to the world outside."   

You can see items in the collection at Thronateeska.
Some are also on display at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport.
Thronateeska will also now maintain the Royal Air Force Collection at Crown Hill Cemetery, the entrance to Miller Coors, and the intersection of Turner Field Road and Clark Avenue.
