Our Aircraft

About the Collection

We take pride in striving to maintain these aircraft so they can be enjoyed by all to the fullest extent by keeping them in flying condition. Though there's certainly nothing wrong with displaying static aircraft, the experience of being around aircraft in airworthy condition takes one back to the sights, sounds, and even smells of a time gone by. When you tour the VWFM you'll notice that our aircraft may be leaking oil and even a bit of jet fuel. Don't worry! That's the beauty of a warbird in flying condition! 

 

In addition to occasionally running and flying our aircraft at Ellington Field, be on the lookout for our aircraft on the airshow circuit.
