The story of the Planes of Fame Air Museum is the story of one man’s vision.
Ed Maloney knew that protecting our aviation history was important. At a time when very few shared his foresight, he understood the need to preserve, inspire, educate, and honor the legacy of what was then an industry less than half a century old.
Today, his vision is reflected in the extensive collection of the Planes of Fame Air Museum, comprising aircraft and artifacts that might have been lost forever. His vision lives in roar and thunder of rare warbirds flying overhead to the delight of millions. Moreover, his vision perseveres through the efforts of our volunteers and staff to make the experience of each visitor to the Museum unique and memorable.
As a 501.c.3 non-profit organization, the Museum relies on donations to augment our fundraising efforts.
Donations are an active way for individuals and corporations to provide important support to specific activities, events, initiatives, and attractions.
