Testimonials
"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."

LIVING HISTORY FLYING DAYS

Living History Flying Days at Planes of Fame Air Museum are are held on the first Saturday of every month when we feature an historically significant aircraft from our rare and unique collection.  Our program begins at 10:am with the Pledge of Allegiance.  Typically we host a 1.5 hr. discussion panel of expert speakers each presenting to the public.  Speakers often include: book authors, pilots, historians, and/or eyewitness accounts of historic events and sometimes include a slideshow.  An opportunity for question and answer is provided followed by a member raffle for a flight that day, weather permitting.  At noon, again weather permitting, we fly the featured aircraft overhead for about 20 minutes.  Featured aircraft are generally on display and available to photograph during the program.  We have come to expect anywhere from 250 - 500 guests in attendance so please arrive early to secure a good seat and tour the Museum before the program starts.  Doors open at 9:00 a.m. on Saturdays and the gift shop has a limited number of author/speaker books available.  See you there!
