"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."

"On behalf of the Villa Park High School Reunion Committee, I would like to thank you and Pancho and your entire staff for helping us to put on what seemed to be a flawless Reunion on August 4th! As far as I could tell, everyone in the room (and outside of it as well) was very happy with everything that went on. We received nothing but rave reviews about the Museum. So, thanks again!" Bob S.
