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!

“The patriotic flag presentation... was very impressive and the mood of the show was upbeat and appropriate for the times. The Air Power flight was absolutely awesome. Best air show I've ever been to. Let's do it again!”

“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.”
Thomas W., Riverside, CA
“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.”
Doug & Maricel R., North Vancouver, B.C.
“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.”
R. S., Email
“The air show was very well organized... and was made to look simple. A lot of hard work was obviously put in by all involved. I won't mention it all, but we enjoyed everything we saw at Airshow 2009!”
Sam F., Upland, CA
