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!

“Many thanks for arranging a tour for LF, the 95-year old former Flying Tiger. It was a huge experience for him... his entire family and I am extremely grateful. You made an old fighter pilot very happy!”
Chuck L., Medina, Washington
“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
“Just a quick note of thanks to Ed Maloney, Steve Hinton, the staff, the volunteers and the sponsors for a really great air show. There's no doubt that you have one of the finest air museums in the country. I'm proud to be a member.”

“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 visited Planes of Fame a week ago and was highly impressed. I've been a docent at the National Air and Space Museum (Garber facility) for the past 26 years, and I can truthfully say that your museum doesn't take a back seat to the national museum at all. Why? Because your aircraft are where they out to be- in real airplane hangars AND most of them FLY... I could go on and on. For years I've been telling visitors on my tours to go to Chino if they had the chance. Now I'm going to tell them to MAKE the chance.”
