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!
“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.”

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

“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.”

“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.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to commend all of you on the fine direction you are headed with the improvements to the Planes of Fame Museum. The Museum has been a valuable asset to the aviation community for many years and I believe the changes only increase the positive impact that will be made.”
