The American Airpower museum is a non profit 501C3 aviation museum and educational foundation chartered by the State of New York based at Republic Airport in Farmingdale,NY. Once the home of Republic Aviation and where such legendary aircraft as the P-47, F-84, F-105, and A-10 were designed and built. The area is rich in aviation history as names such as Fairchild, Grumman, and Seversky once called our Farmingdale location home in the golden age of aviation. We have a collection flying aircraft that include the P-47, P-40, FG-1D Corsair, B-25, C-47, TBM-3, AT-6, WACO UPF-7, and L-39C/ZA. Our statics include the F-84E, RF-84F, F-105D, F-111, T-33, EA-6B. During the Spring and Summer months aircraft are regularly flown locally and displayed for the public.

2020 Bethpage Virtual Air Show

To all our fans,
The past 2 and a half months since we were forced to close our doors due to the Covid-19 health crisis has been an immense challenge to all of us and our communities. We had looked forward to performing in our home town Bethpage Federal Credit Union Air Show for our 17th year this past weekend and were very sad when the word came down that the show itself would be cancelled. An airshow right about now would be a great morale boost without a doubt. Thanks to the great people from the NY State Parks Office on Long Island, and Air Show sponsor Bethpage Federal Credit Union we were able to get a little taste of what almost was this Memorial Day Weekend 2020 with a great virtual air show video narrated by Jones Beach Air Show's announcer Rob Reider. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the performers that we had hope to see, as well as messages from all of those who work hard to make this annual event such a great success. We are honored to have been a part of this and you can catch us and some rarely seen GoPro footage at approximately the 20:15 point in the show! Look forward to being in the skies over Jones Beach again in 2021! Click the link and enjoy!

We pause and take the day to remember all of our Servicemen & Women who have sacrificed so much to liberate the oppressed and protect and defend the freedoms that define our nation and our way of life.

Inside issue 87 of Warbird Digest - Miss Hap, Queen of The Fleet. The North American B-25 Mitchell housed at the American Airpower Museum in Farmingdale, New York, can be considered the elder royalty of today’s surviving B-25s. Not only was it the fourth B-25 ever built; it also served with the first bombardment group equipped with the Mitchell and is most famous for serving as the executive transport for one of America’s first military aviators- General Henry Harley Arnold - Article and photos by our own Greg Morehead - Subscribe in print/digital at https://warbirddigest.com/subscribe/

Heritage Flight Museum

Shared from our friends at the Heritage Flight Museum. This trailblazing Apollo mission would pave the way to the moon 51 years ago. Having flown with Col.Borman and General Anders in the Warbird Community through the years we have enjoyed hearing this missions story in person and it’s both thrilling and humorous. If you ever happen to have an opportunity to hear these legends speak don’t miss it!

Fifty-one years ago this 21 December, Astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders launched aboard a Saturn V rocket bound for the moon, blazing a trail for subsequent lunar landings. They were the first human beings to crew a Saturn V; travel beyond low Earth orbit; escape the gravity of a celestial body; reach, orbit, and return from the moon; witness an Earthrise. Relive the moment with this ABC News broadcast!

Remembering, and Honoring the sacrifice and heroism of 78 years ago today. The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941 is a defining moment in our history and as time passes it is our duty to preserve the legacy and story of that day for future generations. A Salute to the veterans of that day as well pay tribute to the over 3,000 killed and wounded that day. We also salute the greatest generation who answered the call to service with the rallying cry of “Remember Pearl Harbor”!

Returning home after a flight late on a summer day 2019. The North American AT-28D-5 “Nomad” is a newer acquisition of the @american_airpower_museum and is a great addition to our aircraft that salute veterans of the Vietnam War. Our “Nomad” saw combat action in Vietnam, and Laos first as part of the U.S. Air Force “Ravens” program and then as a CIA asset flying for Air America prior to the end of the war.

Winter is setting in so it’s always important to take good care of our more fair weather aircraft. Our 1940s Waco UPF-7 sits stunningly on display in our hangar and can be seen on display at the @american_airpower_museum all winter long. When spring returns you can take advantage of our Waco flight experiences and take to the air in this beauty.

11/18/2019

The Grumman Avenger was the work horse torpedo/ fighter bomber of the U.S. Navy in WWII first seeing combat during the battle of Midway in June of 1942. The first models were given the designation TBF and manufactured at Grumman’s facility in Bethpage, NY just a few miles from our home field of Republic Airport. When production began on the F6F Hellcat Avenger the bulk of Avenger production would be contracted to General Motors Aviation Eastern Aircraft and they would go on to make over 7k TBMs as the GM version was ID’d. Our Grumman Avenger is a TBM-3E and was built in 1944/45 and entered service with the Navy in 1945. One of the more stock examples of its type our Avenger flies regularly through the Spring and Summer and when you visit you can see where the late President Bush who flew Avengers during WWII signed our aircraft.

Yours is and was a noble calling and we are forever grateful for your service. We also would like to salute the many veterans who have made the American Airpower Museum an amazing institution through the years and thankful to have had the ability to share your stories with our younger generations.

11/05/2019

The legendary North American P-51D Mustang based at the American Airpower Museum awaits it’s pilot during a weekend flight operations day the past month. Our P-51D was manufactured in 1944 and delivered to the the 12th Air Force in Italy by December of 1944. Going through depot modifications in early 1945 it would remain un-assigned by wars end and would be sent back to the U.S. with other low time air frames. War weary aircraft were often given to allied air forces after the war or scrapped where as many of the un-assigned and new aircraft were brought back home.
Our tail would serve in the active fledgling US Air Force and Air National Guard up until 1956. It would finish its time at a Kelly AFB in San Antonio, TX in the ANG.

The AT-6 was the advanced trainer for the army Air Force, U.S. Navy/Marines, and many allied air forces producing pilots during World War II and in the years after the war. You can fly with us and experience what it’s like to fly in the famed “pilot maker”!

If you care about personal flight please comment on Remote ID before March 2. Remote ID, as proposed, kills model aviation without any valid reason. This threatens the future of all personal aviation. As a third generation flyer, it is a terrible shock that my beloved hobby and the sky I fly in could be taken away. Remote ID is, unnecessarily, a takeover of our low altitude and private airspace. The blow that is being delivered to the model aviation community could come next to manned recreational aviation. Our sky is a natural resource and a place to discover the joy of flight. Those of us who know what it means to fly must speak up today. If you love to fly, dream of flying, or wish to see future pilots and aircraft take to the sky, please comment on Remote ID today. Christopher Webb, EAA Life Member, AMA Life Member
What an amazing collection of aircraft and artifacts!! We also got to observe restoration in progress! The staff was super-friendly and knowledgeable! The kids really enjoyed themselves!!
