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.

#throwbackthursday takes us back to 1984 at @officialhillafb for the final flights of the Republic F-105Ds of the 419th FW. 1984 marked the reserve wing’s transition from the venerable F-105 to the relatively new F-16 Fighting Falcon better known as the Viper. Why is this significant to us at @american_airpower_museum ? Well the 3rd F-105D with the F-16 on it’s wing is serial #62-4361, the very same F-105D in our museum’s collection of static aircraft today. It was one of the last operational F-105s and would end up being flown to Rickenbocker ANG base in OH where it would remain on display until 2001 when it was transferred by the USAF museum into our collection. This would mark the return home to its place of manufacture at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, NY. This would mark the first time an F-105 was back on a Republic Flightline in almost 20 years. You can see 62-4361 along with other examples of historic aircraft both flying and static all summer long at the @american_airpower_museum .

It’s #warbirdwednesday! Here’s a great shot of our North American Aviation B-25 Mitchell “Miss Hap” and our Curtiss P-40M Warhawk over the south shore of Long Island! Both legendary aircraft of World War II. A great photo taken by S.Snortland of @srs_images!

04/19/2019

Today marks the 77th Anniversary of the Daring Doolittle Raid on Tokyo to avenge the attack on Pearl Harbor when 16 B-25s with 80 pilots and crew launched from the deck of the USS Hornet on April 18th, 1942. Last week marked the end of the Raiders era with the passing of Lt. Col Dick Cole, who was the co-pilot along with Jimmy Doolittle in the lead B-25 that lead the first Joint Operation of the war! We have had the honor to know many of the Raiders later in life and have been privileged to take part in many Reunion events beginning in 2005. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Lt. Col. Cole and with the entire Raider extended family as we say goodbye to the men who became American heroes when the nation needed them most. Although an end of an era it isn’t the end of their story as it is now up to all of us to carry on their legacy and pass on their story to future generations.....enjoy the video.

#throwbackthursday takes us back to July of 2018 when our North American AT-28D-5 “Nomad” was captured during a low pass at the “Greatest show on turf” at the National Warplane Museum In Geneseo, NY. The Wright R1820-56S engine has such a unique sound! This Aircraft took to the skies over Laos during the Vietnam War as USAF Raven, and also flown by the CIA’s Air America. It will once again take to the skies this spring and summer at the @american_airpower_museum !

03/15/2019

Considered by General Eisenhower to be one of the major contributors to winning WWII the C-47 has been one of the longest serving aircraft in history. A derivative of the DC-3 that first flew in 1935 the “Gooney Bird” was eventually retired from U.S. military service after the Vietnam war but they still serve both military operators and civilian cargo carriers to this day. It is most recognized as the aircraft that delivered paratroopers into combat during WWII and with this being the 75th Anniversary of D-Day we will be focusing a good bit of attention on this legendary warbird we are honored to able to display to the public this summer. Be sure to stay tuned for more info on flight operations and the developing 2019 ride program coming soon!

Busy getting ready for the 2019 flying season this month! Look forward to seeing our Vietnam Veteran North American AT-28D-5 take to the skies again this spring and summer! She’s a “dirty bird” for sure but some oil adds a little character along with racks and .50 caps just makes it look even better!

The oldest B-25 still flying today the American Airpower Museum RB-25 Mitchell named “Miss Hap” on approach to our home field of Republic Airport. “Miss Hap” was one of the first B-25s delivered to the USAAC in Feb 1941, and would go on to become the personal transport of USAAF Commander General Henry “Hap” Arnold during WWII. She will return to the skies this spring for the 2019 flight operations season!

#flashbackfriday takes us back a few years when we had this historic gathering of inspiring WWII veterans of the #tuskegeeairmen! Many now legendary members the of the 332nd FG and the 477th BG were fellow New Yorkers and were regular guests and long time supporters of the @american_airpower_museum. We were fortunate and honored to call them our friends, and although sadly most have now passed on, they have left an incredible legacy. So during this #blackhistorymonth 2019 we honor and pay tribute to the Pilots, Maintainers, and support crew of the WWII 332nd FG and the 477th BG for their dedication to duty, country, and their perseverance to break barriers that have left an amazing legacy for future generations of aviators and Americans.

#throwbackthursday takes us back nearly 26 years ago to one of our first and last times we hosted a full Air Show prior to our settling in Long Island. We hosted an Air Show in Poughkeepsie, NY called “Wings over the Hudson” in 1993 and had a pretty awesome line up for the time. Here is a flightline shot of three of the P-51 Mustangs we had visiting at the time.

This week has been a cold one here at the American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, NY. We've tucked the aircraft into the warm hangar to keep them out of the elements. Here's a shot of a few of our Legends of Airpower on display, both made by North American Aviation during and immediately the Second World War. Our P-51D of the WWII and Korean War Era along side our Vietnam War Combat veteran AT-28D-5 which began life as one of the first T-28A trainers produced for the then newly minted United States Air Force. Both aircraft are on display and fly regularly during the Spring and Summer Months. Check out the aircraft bios in our aircraft section of our web site.
