August 2014: Come and see our new plane! C-45
Feb 2014: from our Development Director and Campaign Chair:
Campaign a Success!
Joe Campanella, campaign chair, announced in December that the $12 million campaign to raise funds for the museum has been reached and it was a huge success. We exceeded our goal and raised $12,116, 860.00.
The campaign, which started in 2006, made it possible to accomplish many things: buy the property, purchase and restore our warbirds, build two hangars, maintain the museum, develop exciting exhibits, purchase two flight simulators, and establish educational programs for elementary and high school students.
Thank you to all who supported this important campaign.
...Axis Nightmare is one of the six B-25's invited to participate in this last Doolittle Raiders Reunion - the toast to the fallen comrades, the missing man formation flying.
One of our super great billboards around town
What a great picture! Taken from another airplane you can see the amazing timing of the B-25 Axis Nightmare Veteran Tribute Flyover at the Virginia Tech-Duke football game October 26, 2013 - the Anthem was just finishing, the canon was shot (see the canon smoke on the field in the upper left corner)...and the crowd of 40,000+ appreciates the flying B-25 reminding us of the sacrifices made by our veterans...!! Thanks to all who made this possible including - Stan Cohen, Paul Redlich, Phillip Rountree...!
Come and see our beautifully restored World War II airplanes...B-25 Mitchell bomber "Axis Nightmare", TBM torpedo bomber (the wings fold!), P-51 Mustang "Cincinnati Miss" fighter, AT-6 Texan advanced trainer "Tweety", Stearman primary trainer and 1946 Piper Clipper. Look at currently-being-restored aircraft, very rare to be able to see how the airplanes are built - P-40 Kittyhawk fighter, Fw190 German fighter and the bent-wing Corsair fighter...visitor hours are Wednesday 4-7pm and Saturday 10am - 3pm...see you there! Annual and Lifetime Memberships are available, especially good if you bring your whole family and you visit us many times in the year (we hope you do!)
