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!
“I visited Planes of Fame a week ago and was highly impressed. I've been a docent at the National Air and Space Museum (Garber facility) for the past 26 years, and I can truthfully say that your museum doesn't take a back seat to the national museum at all. Why? Because your aircraft are where they out to be- in real airplane hangars AND most of them FLY... I could go on and on. For years I've been telling visitors on my tours to go to Chino if they had the chance. Now I'm going to tell them to MAKE the chance.”

“My answer is D all of the above, final answer! There was literally not one moment where I could stop myself from taking a break taking pictures of everything. It was pretty awesome though to see the only flyable flying wing.”

“I visited Planes of Fame about 3 years ago. If I had to offer a one-word description it would be "Wow!" ... I was wearing my VFM uniform shirt and ID badge (and) the folks at Planes of Fame welcomed me like I was a personal friend!”

“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'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.”
