Tillamook Air Museum's Mini-Guppy


While in Tillamook, Oregon my husband and I toured the Tillamook Air Museum. The first thing you can’t miss when you pull up is their Mini-Guppy.

This Mini-Guppy was converted from a Boeing 377 Stratocruiser prior to coming to Tillamook and used for the transport of large Air-Crane helicopters until 1994 when it was acquired by the museum and retired.

During the conversion, the aircraft was fitted with the first “wide-body” Guppy, with a 13 ft. wide cargo floor and a maximum inside diameter of 18 ft. with the constant section measuring just 73 ft. long.

Today it is part of the museum and guests are able to climb into it and read more information and learn more about its history.
