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!
“I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Planes of Fame Air Museum for all you did for my Dad during our visit and to let (a veteran) sit in a B-25 again. You truly made his dream come true. I just don't know how I can really thank you.”

“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.”

“Your Planes of Fame airshow 2013 was amazing! So many spectacularly restored warbirds. It's not an airshow, but history in flight!”

“Just got back home to Hawaii. I wanted you to know that I stopped by the Planes of Fame Air Museum Monday with my son. He's a fabricator/welder (hot rods/motorcycles) and I thought he'd enjoy your place. Understatement. We met a great gentleman in your "restoration" hanger. He was busy working on the Me- 109 but saw our curiosity and dropped everything to show my son some of the tools/equipment that are used. He toured us around a bit with his wealth of knowledge. It was absolutely cool. Thanks for everything. I have and will spread the word. Your place is special. Mahalo.”

“I'm writing on the occasion of my 81st birthday. I want to thank you for allowing me the opportunity to participate in the fabulous air show... I met and chatted with many visitors that day- even a young 9-year old air enthusiast whose Dad told me the boy wanted to "Salute a soldier." We saluted and the boy was all smiles...it made my day as I fought back the tears.”
