A bid to preserve the Antelope Valley's rich aviation history is taking flight near the Palmdale Airport as work begins on an attraction local officials hope will eventually draw thousands of tourists a year. The Plant 42 Heritage Airpark--celebrating the accomplishments of the Air Force's storied Plant 42--is expected to open in early October. With only two airplanes currently at the Avenue P site, it will be a modest debut.
