Planes of Fame Air Museum has a 50+-year history of providing aviation and military vehicles for film industry and photo shoot projects. We offer over 40 flying vintage aircraft for air-to-air work, some of which are the only flying examples of their type in the world, and over 100 aircraft that can be used as background props or close-up ‘in the cockpit’ shots.

In addition, we have an authentic fully operational Sherman tank, a variety of other military motor pool vehicles, 7 enclosed and spacious airplane hangars, and a "boneyard" that can be used for a unique shooting location.

Planes of Fame Air Museum has provided aircraft and military vehicles for numerous blockbuster films, television shows, commercials, documentaries, as well as countless magazine and print advertising. Many of our aircraft can be fitted for use as camera platforms, including our World War II era B-25 Mitchell with numerous large windows and open portals.

Our pilots and ground crew personnel (many Screen Actors Guild members) are experienced professionals who understand detailed work schedules, high-profile discretion, and what it takes to get the perfect shot.

Planes of Fame Air Museum is centrally located in Chino, California near Los Angeles and other key shooting locations. Aircraft, pilots and crew are available to travel to almost any geographic location in the world.
