The Collection

Hundreds of rare aviation items and artifacts are on display in the Spirit of Flight Hall of Honor representing the past, present and future of flight. Many items are unique and one of a kind.

The core of the collection features WWII items including WWII aircraft, aircraft parts, rare engines, memorabilia, art, uniforms and much more. Cold War era artifacts are also on display including rockets and the prototype Cessna L-19 Bird Dog.

Several aircraft are under restoration to flying condition which will be displayed at the Spirit of Flight Center. The aircraft will be living history, displayed and flown at Airshows and other flying events for the general public. Aircraft featured in the collection include a German Messerschmitt Bf-109, Grumman S-2 Tracker, Douglas A-4 Skyhawk and a Fairchild PT-23 which was built by the St. Louis Aircraft Corporation.  Also in the collection is a BD-5J, Pitts S1S, Art Chester’s Swee’ Pea Racer, and the only surviving Mercury BT-120 Staggerwing.  The Spirit of Flight is seeking sponsors of the aircraft to help restore and operate them. Please contact our offices for information on sponsorship.

The collection is frequently rotated with new items which are acquired or donated. In addition, there are featured displays which highlight historic events, groups, people, aircraft, manufacturers and much more. Guests are invited to stop by often.
