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.

The exciting story
of building the B-24 Liberator
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
