We want you to experience the history of aviation in motion—that’s why our vision is to give you rare aircraft that are fully restored to flying condition. And we want you to understand how aviation has played a key role in shaping history itself, and how it will continue to shape our future.


But it’s the personal details that make history come to life. Every aircraft in our collection has a unique "backstory." Some are packed with drama, some simply offer prime examples of the roles aviation played during 1927–1957— and fun facts about the people and events that make up our world. Dig into our collection, learn more, and come back soon for new stories!
