Evergreen aviation campus up for sale

MCMINNVILLE, Ore.     (AP) -- The headquarters of the dissolving Evergreen aviation empire in McMinnville are for sale.

The Yamhill Valley News-Register reports the sale is a result of bankruptcy proceedings begun in January.

Evergreen companies dealt in baggage handling, helicopter operations and global cargo transport, especially for the military.

The buildings are across Oregon Highway 18 from the well-known Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, a nonprofit operation that plans to remain open.

The paper said the campus buildings are listed for nearly $23 million individually. As a package deal, the price is $20 million.

The campus includes a 13,500-square-foot Learjet hangar and 2,500 square feet of office space, as well as the building now occupied by Erickson Air-Crane.

 Last year Erickson bought Evergreen's helicopter operation. The company hasn't said whether it plans to buy the building.
