OPENING OF OUTDOOR MUSEUM SPACES (Chino, CA Location Only)
Join us for the Planes of Fame 'Outdoor Experience' starting on Saturday, May 30, 2020! Over an acre of outdoor space will be available for visitors to stretch their legs and enjoy viewing our historic aircraft. The hangar doors will be open for our guests to look into the hangars while viewing the aircraft from an outdoor environment. Admission prices have been reduced and the hours of operation have been revised during this phased re-opening. While keeping in compliance with State and County requirements, we hope to open more of the Museum as restrictions are modified. Read more ...
Our Planes Fly
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 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.”

“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.”

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

“My wife and I visited Planes of Fame on Veterans Day, and I just wanted to thank you for the free admission to the museum for being a vet. I appreciate what you do for all the veterans.”

“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.”
