It’s been an amazing year for us, especially the past seven months since we opened our new museum.

We’ve welcomed more than 60,000 visitors, including 4,500 students for educational programming, and have added three aircraft to our collection.

Our staff and volunteers worked tirelessly to get ready for our grand opening this past May. Since then, they’ve put forward a phenomenal experience for visitors.

We’re so thankful to our visitors, pass holders, donors, partners, and community for making our first seven months a huge success.

Enjoy these highlights!
