Planes of Fame Air Museum

Planes of Fame Air Museum Where Warbirds Fly and Aviation History Lives! World-famous aviation museum based in Chino, California and Valle, Arizona.
(2033)

While the journey from 10 original aircraft to over 150 has been a long one, our mission has never changed. It is the Mission of Planes of Fame Air Museum to preserve aviation history, inspire interest in aviation, educate the public, and honor aviation pioneers and veterans. And although the Museum spans the history of manned flight from the Chanute Hang Glider of 1896 to the Space Age of Apollo, many more chapters remain to be written and many more stories told before the vision of a young Ed Maloney is finally fulfilled. Come see us!

75 years ago today, the war ended in Europe with Germany's surrender. Known as VE-Day, or Victory in Europe Day, the world was one massive step closer to ending World War 2. We take time today to reflect on the cost of those lost and the service of the greatest generation who stood up to face an unprecedented evil in the world.

2018 Air Show - my first encounter with the PFAM.
As of right now all airshows have been cancelled or postphoned until this nasty and deadly covid 19 is gone from us and the world too. Stay tuned with these folks for all updates both now and in the future times ahead.
Do you remember last year's Air Show when we didn't have to worry about social distancing? #planesoffame
In line to get your tickets to the Air Show. #planesoffame
Okay, with not much to do these days and the 2020 Air Show cancelled, I thought that maybe I would post some images of last year's show to bring to life those memories of what an incredible event it is. So either jump on the tram or walk and join in. #planesoffame
Sorry to bring up a bad subject but being i travel from NJ for the Airshow i'd love to see a decision made on if it'll be postponed or canceled so i can call the airline & reschedule,i really don't see it happening the beginning of May with what's going on.
A big Thank You to Lisa Collinsworth at the POF library. She was able to locate a copy of the Cal-Aero publication Slipstream from 1941. We were looking for information on a cadet who went through the school there and unfortunately was killed later on a Japanese Hell ship. The information was passed on to the family.
Are there any books/magazines in the reference library there from Cal-Aero Academy. Looking for 1941 class books called the Slipstream. I would visit in person but I'm located the Philippines. Miss the airshows, have to rely on all you folks who provide photos. Thanks.
