Mysteries of aviation archaeology remain unresolved to this day. Most often, after accident investigation concludes, these locations remain undisturbed. Who doesn't want to find a Corsair and see one fly today?

On the first Saturday of every month Planes of Fame Air Museum, a 501(c)(3), hosts a Flying Day featuring an historically significant aircraft from our extensive WWII flyable collection. We present an expert panel discussion culminating in a flight demonstration. Planes of Fame Air Museum restores, displays, and flies aircraft to educate and inspire current and future generations. View our website at for more information.
