The WACO Historical Society opened the "Historic WACO Field" north of Dayton in 1997, and it now has a busy, fascinating little museum dedicated to the products of the Weaver Aircraft Company of Ohio.
In the late 1920s WACO was the largest producer of civil aircraft in the world.|
By the way - the folks there insist that the pronunciation of WACO is as in water, ie "Wawe-co", not to be confused with Waco, Texas which is pronounced "Way-co".
