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 attended the air show and was amazed by the number of beautifully restored aircraft and how well-organized the air show was. As a former airman in Korea, I was delighted to see some of my familiar aircraft in the show.... it is my pleasure to contribute to your well-oiled operation”

“My wife and I really wanted to thank you for the hospitality you extended us when we visited Planes of Fame. Seeing the SBD, Navion, Val and Bf-109 (HA-1112) up close was a treat, but even more so listening to your experiences. We have visited Planes of Fame before, but that day will always stand out as memorable.”

“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!”

“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.”
