Tennessee Museum of Aviation

Relive History as the Tennessee Museum of Aviation's A-1H Skyraider "Lieutenant America" #139665 and the Cavanaugh Flight Museum's A-1H Skyraider "Wiley Coyote" #139606 are reunited for a Skyraider Pilots Reunion on May 4, 2019 from 10am-3pm
Weather permitting, history will take flight over Sevierville, as two of the four surviving A-1H Skyraiders honor all USAF Skyraider pilots who so heroically fought during the Vietnam War. These two aircraft flew together for the last time on May 6, 1975, nearly 44 years to the day.

We had a very special visitor today. Jeff "Spock" Greer was able to stand next to the A7 He flew in "Desert Storm". Jeff was apart of the first night of conflict, launching "TALD" Decoys to confuse the Iraqi defenses to make way for the rest of the A7 attack. Thanks for your service Jeff!

There was an accident in Fredericksburg, Texas involving a P51 today. It was NOT the “Brat lll”. Our thoughts and prayers are with those involved.
A local news agency is using the “Brat” as a “file” photo.

Enjoy this video tribute to the museum and plan on coming out Saturday, November 10th, to enjoy the museum "behind the chains" as we open up many of our cockpits for special tours.
