Every day at Planes of Fame Air Museum, you can experience history - both the reliving of it and the making of it. When one of our planes flies, for most it is a rare and wonderful thing to witness. Planes of Fame Air Museum has maintained a fleet of flyable historic aircraft for over 60 years! The Museum has operated these types of aircraft longer than the Army Air Corps or Air Force did. Planes of Fame Air Museum truly is where aviation history lives.

You too can experience history through Planes of Fame Air Museum. Maybe you live too far to visit, but we hope this website gives you a taste of what we try to do here every day. And maybe someday, you will hear the roar, look up in the sky and see one of our planes overhead!

“It was terrific to see the P-59...it brought back the feeling of elation I had some 65 years ago when I first saw the real thing... I had about 10 hours in the P-59. Enclosed is my check to be used in the restoration of the P-59.”
Harry M., Little Rock, Arkansas
“The patriotic flag presentation... was very impressive and the mood of the show was upbeat and appropriate for the times. The Air Power flight was absolutely awesome. Best air show I've ever been to. Let's do it again!”

“It was great being at the Planes of Fame Air Museum yesterday. I'm so glad Sandy recruited me for the occasion. It was a worthwhile experience and I really enjoyed participating in the event. I must compliment you and all concerned on the extremely organized function. Enclosed are a couple photos of me wearing my 65-year old helmet, goggles and oxygen mask, which ended up like the paparazzi (taking pictures).”
Selwyn L., San Diego, CA
“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.”
James H., Clarkson, WA
“Recently, I visited the Planes of Fame Air Museum and found it most interesting... it is the way all museums should be patterned after. Someone is doing an excellent job.”
Sam F., Sherman Oaks, CA
