"I am writing regarding the P-51A... (Serial #). She was sitting on jacks at Cal Aero Tech when I attended A/C maintenance training there in June of 1951. I often felt sadness for that aircraft, as I was sure it was destined for the bone yard. You cannot imagine the thrill it gave me to run across your museum and see her so beautiful and know she was safe. It made me misty-eyed. I honor you for maintaining a beautiful legacy."

Kilroy Coffee Klatch

Nov 7, 2017

The Kilroy Coffee Klatch is honored to serve as a venue for our Veterans to gather. We invite all veterans to join in, meet other veterans from the area, share your stories, or share whatever is on your mind. We offer FREE admission to the Museum and complimentary coffee and doughnuts for attending veterans and their guests.

The Kilroy Coffee Klatch will be held the first Tuesday of every month at 9:00 am to 10:00 am. Don't forget to browse the Museum's collection of aircraft afterwards. We hope this monthly meeting will provide an enjoyable and meaningful exchange of ideas for our Veterans. 

New for November: We will be doing a short presentation at 9:15 am on the Republic RF-84K Thunderflash.  The RF-84K was the reconnaissance version of the swept-wing F-84F model.  The RF-84K model was used in the FICON Project, which focused on a strike role for the B-36 and RF-84K. The plan was for the B-36 with superior range to carry the RF-84K and arrive in the vicinity of the target to deploy the faster F-84 in order to deliver a tactical nuclear weapon. The F-84 would then return to the B-36 to be carried home.
