I believe the HK-1 is still owned by an aviation club.
It apparently did not pay as a tourist attraction in SoCalif, so its
possession and care was turned over to Evergreen Airlines in
McMinnville, Oregon, about 40 miles southwest of Portland.

The fuselage and wings have been more or less out in the elements, save
for some plastic wrap.  It looks like they are gradually building
'houses' to cover its major pieces where they sit.

It is planned to be the centerpiece of a WWII aircraft museum.  Those
plans are seemingly at a crawl for reasons both personal and financial.
