The last updates on the museum listings were added 18 Jan 2011
Due to legal changes in Illinois, I will not be updating this list until further notice.
These museums change their information and locations very often.
Please try to contact the museum before you try to visit it, it may not be there anymore.

 Notice: The Champlin Fighter Aircraft Museum in Mesa, Arizona is now closed. The collection has moved to The Museum of Flight, Seattle, WA

Notes from the WebMaster:
Now moved to Seattle, WA, but when I first went to this museum I thought, Am I actually going to pay to get into this place.  What a fool I was.  They have a great section on just Aviation Paintings. It was worth the entrance to see just the paintings alone.  But believe me, the rest of the museum is fantastic with a lot of other aircraft stuff other than airplanes. The only thing that I could say is that this place is fantastic and you should never miss this museum. It must have the worlds greatest inventory of WWI aircraft.  It's Great!!!!

I saw on your museum page for Arizona that you did not have a location for the Planes of Fame Museum. It is located at the Valle Airport which is located on Arizona Highway 64 at the junction of US Route 180, in Valle,  Arizona.  This is halfway from Sedona to the Grand Canyon Airport as the crow ( or any other aviator) flies!     Ken Romm

I wanted to thank you for your help.  We have called the airfield in Arizona and have made arrangements for my husband's birthday present - flying a fighter plane.  I'm sure he will be excited and it will be a present he will remember forever.  Thank you again for all your help.

Dear Debra,
Yes, there are a number of military aircraft that can be flown, some are very expensive and some you can even have a real dogfight with another aircraft with laser bullets and smoke and the whole works.  Here is the link to the website that has the whole shooting match.
One of my friends took a MiG-25 to 80,000 feet last year and loved every minute of it. Thank you very much for writing and have a nice day,

Last spring the North Pole temperature was only -25 degree F. 
 We flew an ultralight, 6 balloon pilots logged their North Pole flights,

We had five jumpers who entered their jumps in their logbooks,
there was a man in a wheelchair who made it to the pole,
We had several helicopters, a home built airplane, a jet 
and an An-2 Biplane there.  Everyone got to visit Star City (Russia's NASA)
the Kremlin Armory, and Red Square.  The Expedition members flew in 
Russian Military aircraft including the An-24, An-74, and the Mi-8.  They also
visited Khatanga and saw the Woolly Mammoth Digs, and Shrednii Island's
Russian, formerly secret, ICBM base and more. The trip was inexpensive 
and you can go to the north pole site or go with us next by clicking here


Take a tour of an operational World War 2 fighter squadron stationed on the Western Pacific Island of Ie Shima.  This is a historical event showing the complete fighter operation from the Mess Hall to the P-47 in flight.  You can also see the Japanese Surrender Delegation visit the Island.
