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.

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.

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.

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 American Airpower Museum where history flies!
The museum’s #WWII North American AT-6D banks away on departure during one of our History Flight experience rides! 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”!

The American Airpower Museum where aviation history flies!
The museum’s #ww2 Grumman TBM-3E “Avenger” stands as a testament to the legendary aircraft production that once was a mainstay of Long Island, NY’s aircraft industry. The Avenger began life as the locally manufactured TBF that first saw combat service at the Battle of Midway built in Bethpage Long Island and would go on to be built in large numbers by sub-contractor General Motors and built by Eastern Aircraft - GMs Aircraft division. Our TBM was built by GM in 1944-45 when local Grumman production transitioned to mass producing the F6F “Hellcat”. The Avenger originally designed as a carrier based torpedo bomber would go on to serve in the fighter bomber roll attacking shipping and ground targets during the island hopping campaign that helped win the war in the pacific during #wwii .
You can see this expertly restored and flown example of the Avenger at our museum on display all year long and flown during the spring through late fall.

Today Marks the 75th Anniversary of Operation Market Garden Sept 17-25 1944 that began with the largest airborne operation of WWII up to that time. “Market” as the airborne operation was labeled in this two phase campaign had the objective to seize 9 bridges with the American 101st, 82nd, and British 1st AB divisions on day one in the Netherlands to establish a foothold over the Rhine to set the conditions for the ground phase led by British Armor to establish a salient into German held territory and create a northern thrust to threaten Germany with a pincer from their northern flank. The operation would eventually fail in its ultimate objectives. There would be great heroism, but also heavy losses by operations end. The story would be told and made famous in Cornelius Ryans book “A Bridge too far”, and then later the 1977 movie of the same name.

#flashbackfriday take us back to 1943 aboard the USS independence, a US Navy light Aircraft Carrier. This shot of NY Long Island built Grumman TBF “Avengers” was thought to have been photographed in April of ‘43 during training ops off the US coast or perhaps during its transition to the Caribbean prior to crossing through the Panama Canal for Pacific Theater Operations in July of 1943.

Today we remember the attacks of September 11th, 2001 on this 18th anniversary. We remember the sacrifice of those lost that day here in New York, at the Pentagon, and in a field in Pennsylvania. We also pay tribute to the first responders who ran towards the danger in order to keep us safe. Many of those who would answer the call to help would sacrifice all to save lives that day. We also honor those in our own ranks of museum volunteers through the years who served that day, both as first responders at ground zero and as members of the armed forces who took to the skies to defend the nation in a time of uncertainty. We will never forget.....

We will go with #tacticaltuesday for today’s post of the @american_airpower_museum North American AT-28D-5 “Nomad” taking off from #republicairport runway 19. The AT-28D was the combat variant of the long serving training T-28 designed specifically for US counter insurgency operations in South East Asia. Our AT-28D is currently on loan to us and saw service in Laos and Vietnam from 1967-1973 under the USAF Raven Program and the CIAs Air America. Flown today at the museum and at airshows in honor of our Vietnam Veterans.
