“Business As Usual" -- Planes of Fame Air Museum is open to guests Wednesdays thru Sundays. Read more ...
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 got back home to Hawaii. I wanted you to know that I stopped by the Planes of Fame Air Museum Monday with my son. He's a fabricator/welder (hot rods/motorcycles) and I thought he'd enjoy your place. Understatement. We met a great gentleman in your "restoration" hanger. He was busy working on the Me- 109 but saw our curiosity and dropped everything to show my son some of the tools/equipment that are used. He toured us around a bit with his wealth of knowledge. It was absolutely cool. Thanks for everything. I have and will spread the word. Your place is special. Mahalo.”

“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!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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!”
