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.

On Monday December 7th, American Airpower Museum pilot Nick Ziroli took to the skies over New York Harbor for the Dropping of the Roses over the Statue of Liberty to conclude our Pearl Harbor Day Rememberance Ceremonies hosted in partnership with the Long Island Air Force Association - LIAFA Chapter at AAM. A now 20 year tradition was captured for the first time in HD by Chopper 12! Great job Nick, and be sure to check out this great footage!

LI American Airpower Museum Hosts Pearl Harbor Anniversary Event

Yesterday, December 7th we proudly honored the memory of those who gallantly served and sacrificed 79 years ago on the "Date that will live in infamy". Marking the anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor that entered the United States into WWII we continued a tradition that began in 2000 in partnership with the Long Island Air Force Association - LIAFA with the dropping of the roses over the Statue of Liberty in honor of all those who answered the call on that fateful day. We also took the opportunity to honor local WWII veterans who we were privileged to have in attendance who also answered their nations call to service with the rallying cry of "Remember Pearl Harbor".

American Airpower Museum honors WWII veterans for defending country and its allies

Yesterday we enjoyed beautiful weather as we had an opportunity to honor our Veterans ahead of this years Veterans Day. A big thank you for all our NY/LI Elected officials including Nassua County Executive Laura Curran, our volunteers, and community partners who helped make the event so special. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 attendance numbers had to be limited by state guidance but we were just happy to be able to have the time with some of our local vets, and a big thank you for the NY Army National Guard for attending and showcasing their UH-60 Black Hawk on our ramp. Thanks to News 12 LI for taking the time to cover this great event.

The American Airpower Museum held a special event ahead of Veterans Day on Saturday in Farmingdale.

11/07/2020

The American Airpower Museum—Long Island’s only flying military aviation museum—will host a special Veterans Day program honoring Long Island veterans, on Saturday, Nov. 7, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The American Airpower Museum (AAM) is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the men and women who have worn the uniform of our armed forces. Veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq will be on hand
Among the honorees are eight World War II veterans from Long Island’s greatest generation—Frank Agoglia, Deer Park; Ed Dionian, Farmingdale; Robert Edelson, Massapequa; Albert Gallo, Garden City South; Dr. Richard Heinl, Syosset; Bud Rosch, Bethpage; Armand Tarantelli, Hicksville; Carl Tringali, Brooklyn.
Additional honorees are Long Island veterans who were active in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Whether they served in the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, Merchant Marines or Coast Guard, all veterans played an equal role in our victory in World War II and the Cold War,” Clyman explained. “Long Island’s defense industry produced thousands of aircraft for America’s ‘Arsenal of Democracy.’ Our veterans—aware of the risks— flew them into harm’s way in America’s battles against fascism during World War II and in Cold War conflicts against communist tyranny.”
The public is invited to come out on Nov. 7 to attend AAM’s Ceremony of Honors. Afterwards, watch in awe as aircraft from AAM’s fleet of meticulously maintained vintage warbirds depart from the museum’s ramp. They take to the skies to perform precision flybys over Republic Airport, creating super camera-ready opportunities for military aviation enthusiasts.
Admission for adults is $13, seniors and veterans $10 and children $8. No tickets or pre-registration is necessary. Due to the need for social distancing, admission will be limited to a first-come, first-serve basis. A maximum attendance of 150 people will be allowed on the outdoor ramp area. Visitors will be required to wear face masks and have temperatures digitally taken at the entrance. Bring your own lunch, hang out and enjoy the AAM experience. (Afternoon flight demonstrations may be canceled due to inclement weather.)

#wewillneverforget
The events of 19 years ago would have a profound impact on our families, our country, and our local community. Today we remember the fallen, and honor the Police Officers, Fire Fighters, and EMTs who ran towards the danger that day to save lives. We have been privileged and honored to call many of those brave first responders friends and volunteers of the @american_airpower_museum . Today we pause to honor, remember, and we will never forget.

Happy Independence Day! The 244th birthday of our great nation!
Unfortunately due to Covid-19 we are still unable to reopen just yet and begin flight operations as would have liked to celebrate this 4th of July weekend. But we are excited to announce that this holiday weekend begins our initial preparations for a possible reopening by the end of July as our area prepares to enter phase 4 of NYS reopening plan. More to come in the coming weeks. We hope everyone enjoys a fun, safe, and healthy 4th of July Holiday Weekend !

The last few months have been challenging to all. One of the things we’ve missed most is seeing everyone at air shows this time of year. Most of all the fact we couldn’t fly for our hometown crowd at this years @jonesbeachairshow. We are beginning to see conditions improve so we are in the early stages of taking care of aircraft maintenance and our facility so that when allowed to reopen we can return to the air as soon as a possible! Enjoy this shot of our Grumman TBM-3E Avenger landing at our home field of Republic Airport as our fellow hometown friends the @geicoskytypers ready for launch during last years Jones Beach Air Show!

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!

Great day at the American AirPower Museum
Getting Miss Hap ready for her 80th birthday in Feb

Sad news.
At this point we must stress that we are not interested in current day activities or rumors of the Australian Defense Force and their undertakings. We only seek clarity and answers on an officially ignored yet immensely significant time for Australia during WW2. Any persons able to assist the Australian Bunker and Military Museum is seeking researchers in any capacity, either financial, by way of donation or sponsorship, material assistance or with your information, skills or experience, please contact the CEO of the project, Mr. Daniel Hultgren [email protected] or view our web page at www,abmm.org Alternatively, you may respond by phone on 0403523442 We are a Non-profit body and are in the process of getting ready to open our first bunker after a 32 battle with the powers that be that don’t want truth to come out We wish to liaise with appropriately skilled and experienced persons in the Allied Intelligence, Army Intelligence and Engineers Intelligence and Operations sections and or groups from WW2 to current day. We have a strong need to validate information gained from research and require the people in the know to come forward anonymously if preferred and speak with our research team on this subject. In assisting the Australian Bunker and Military Museum project’s research, you will have an active part in unearthing a previously unknown part of Australia's wartime heritage and your contribution will be recorded for posterity. At this point we must stress that we are not interested in current day activities or rumors of the Australian Defence Force and their undertakings. We only seek clarity and answers on an officially ignored yet immensely significant time for Australia during WW2. All persons, Groups and Universities interested in undertaking joint research with the Australian Bunker and Military Museum Project are welcome to make general or specific enquires. We also seek skilled operators in web page design and managing, skilled operators in the Legal field, Geologists or Geophysicists or other persons whom have an active interest in fields related to the Australian Bunker and military museum's operations. If you are able to assist in any way, please feel free to contact me on the above details. You will be a valued part of the Australian Bunker and Military Museum Project team as we continue to cut through 60 years of wartime secrecy and red tape to give Australia back an integral part of her military history. We look forward to speaking with you. We have historical dig planed shortly where the radar has shown good targets, also we are seeking support for a veteran camp ground at Morton telegraph station for young and old. One more point to raise, you may not be aware that this month, we lost more servicemen and women who took their own lives for the entire Vietnam war. It is time for change. Please support projects for our veterans. Look at the sites listed below and see how every veteran in Australian was slapped in the face and many more robbed of recognition they deserve for serving this country. How are we the lucky country when we are losing so many off our brave men and women on home soil. This is a bloody outrage. If you feel the same, please get on board, 49 cents in the dollar of profit will go directly to veterans only needs.
