About 33 Aircraft
The Combat Air Museum has served as an educational institution and tourism destination for more than thirty years. It is one of a handful of major aviation museums in the United States located on an active air field. Visitors to our museum are regularly treated to flying activities of Air Force fighter aircraft and Army helicopter operations. With the second longest runway in the State of Kansas , large refueling tanker aircraft of the Air National Guard and army troop transports often fill the skies around the Museum. The Museum's youth classes offer students a unique opportunity to be immersed in the midst of a museum covering aviation history from the earliest days of flight to the present day. Located at Forbes Field in Topeka , Kansas , the Combat Air Museum is a non-profit institution dedicated to the creation of facilities and resources for the education of the local and regional communities through the collection, preservation, conservation and exhibition of aircraft, information, artifacts, technology and art associated with the military aviation history of the United States of America .

On exhibit at the museum:

  • Aircraft engines of many sizes and types
  • An extensive display of artifacts and dioramas and a growing gallery of military aviation art
Becoming a member in the Combat Air Museum is important to our continuing ability to preserve and interpret the history of aviation. Members receive unlimited free admission, a bi-monthly newsletter (Plane Talk), discounts on gift shop merchandise, invitation to our social events, including bi-monthly meetings with speakers on a wide range of interesting subjects and, above all, a unique exposure to aviation history. The museum has become a popular destination for tourists to northeast Kansas and membership in CAM can help support this facility to continue as a valuable contributor to the quality of life in the region.  Russ Wiedle

Willow Run

The exciting story of  building the B-24 Liberator
Warren Benjamin Kidder (Ben) was the last man to live on the Willow Run property before his house was torn down for the factory construction.  He has done a tremendous amount of research on building the Willow Run Plant and the B-24.  The book is one of the best that I have ever read and you can see a large exhibit here with lots of great photos of the B-24 Liberator under construction plant in World War 2.  Exhibit Added Feb 2000
11 New Pages and a Major Exhibit Upgrade July 2007
