The Spirit of Flight Foundation's History Gallery offers a truly unique display of historic aviation history. The world-class collection blends general and military aviation to inspire the wonders of flight.
Many one-of-a-kind aircraft and unique flight artifacts and memorabilia have been acquired to honor the men and women who have contributed to aviation history and to also educate the general public on the efforts to build and fly aircraft.
Our mission is to acquire, restore, preserve and display aviation history to honor all American veterans, to educate the general public of the significance of aviation, and to inspire future generations to become involved in aviation and/or aviation history. In addition, the Spirit of Flight Foundation produces aviation-themed film and television projects to support its mission.
Come See History!
The Spirit of Flight focuses on showcasing one of a kind and rare pieces of aviation history from 1935-1975.
We are a 100% volunteer-run, 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization supported entirely by museum visitors, members, donors and corporate financial support, as well as through aircraft and parts sales, gift shop sales, and donations of memorabilia.
The Spirit of Flight collection is frequently updated with new items and rotating exhibits, including the Mobile Museum. There is something for everyone!
Season 2 In Production:
Episode 1 Now Available!
Starting at an early age, Gordon Page was obsessed with anything that had to do with airplanes. Compelled to always look up to see what was flying overhead, he quickly developed the ability to identify anything with wings. Since then, Gordon has spent his life Chasing Planes. Follow Gordon on his adventures as a pilot, historian, broker, and aircraft appraiser that detail real life experiences and the efforts to save aviation history. Get an inside look at the world of running a museum and how aircraft and artifacts are appraised, acquired, restored and displayed, in the complete first season of Chasing Planes. Meet collectors, and hear some amazing stories behind historic aircraft and artifacts, sometimes forgotten in storage facilities and hangars for years.
Now available to stream and watch online, purchase, or on DVD! The first complete first season is six full episodes of Chasing Planes, hosted by aviation expert and museum founder, Gordon Page. Visit storage facilities and hangars full of history, and meet museum visitors who look to pawn off historic items. Episodes include discoveries of rare aircraft and artifacts.
