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!

“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.
“Thank you to all staff and volunteers for your hard work and dedication to preserving aviation heritage. I enjoyed the air show with my family and must commend you all for putting on a great show. The event was well run and a pleasure to attend. Great job!”

“I loved it (Airshow 2009). You're more than a museum. To see them in the air, hear them...well, I'm preaching to the choir. You're never going to see that many warbirds in the air for the length of time you guys do. I came from the Bay area and it's worth it. Keep up the great work!”

“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.”

“I just wanted to express my thanks to you and the staff at Valle, AZ for making our visit very special and memorable... The bottom line is that Planes of Fame is more than the planes and the flying, it's the great people working for you that make it an experience my family and I want to repeat. We appreciate the work you have done over many years to preserve our aircraft heritage and I have to think the Good Lord has blessed Planes of Fame because He wants that too.”
Michael H., Vernon, AZ
