#throwbackthursday takes us back to this past Memorial Day weekend when we took the skies with the @geicoskytypers over New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty in a salute to our Military Service men and women. This would kick off our Memorial Day Weekend tribute that would continue at the @jonesbeachairshow weekend.

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.

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 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.

Home for the night after a successful showing at Geneseo, NY airshow. American Airpowers TBM Avenger.
These planes were an inspiration to all that got to fly them and all that get to see and hear about them
Great place to visit. This was where holding was on Friday for Madam Secretary job.
Great Flight experience on the T-6 WWII, on last Summer Day with Beautiful Weather... Like to Thank the Pilot - Greg(Kiwi) for great flight and also the mechanic for finding my phone that was dropped in the A/C during the flight(LOL)... Staff(Volunteers) also was also great... If you flying and/or love to see the island/water/beaches (Sightseeing) this will be an experience you won't forget....
Is everything okay at the Museum after last night's storm?
Nice visiting you guys today!
