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 visited Planes of Fame about 3 years ago. If I had to offer a one-word description it would be "Wow!" ... I was wearing my VFM uniform shirt and ID badge (and) the folks at Planes of Fame welcomed me like I was a personal friend!”
Internet post from Texas
“I was lucky enough to see your Sherman Tank...over Presidents Day weekend. It isn't every day you get to see a WWII tank driving along and firing its main gun. Thanks you for your efforts to bring this tank back to life.”

“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.”

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

“I loved it (Airshow 2009). You're more than a museum. To see them in the air, hear them...well, I'm preaching to the choir. You're never going to see that many warbirds in the air for the length of time you guys do. I came from the Bay area and it's worth it. Keep up the great work!”
