Not Just a Museum, an Experience
Ready to take a step back in time and see what it was really like to be part of the United States Air Force during times of combat?
Plan your visit
Get up close and personal with real wartime planes, artifacts, and stories at our WWII history museum in Mesa, Arizona.
Take a Secret Mission Night Flight
See the Phoenix city night lights from a whole different perspective. Take a secret night mission aboard our C-47 “Old Number 30”.
Give the Gift of Flight
Buy a seat in one of our seven flying warbirds for that special someone in your life this holiday season!
November is the perfect month to introduce the following new exhibits to the museum:
Grand Opening of World War I Exhibit: How the use of aviation in combat was born during the Great War. 32 Nations engaged in the conflict from 1914 – 1919.
Huey UH-1B Gunship Helicopter Exhibit: This combat veteran is now in its spot inside the museum. In partnership with the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation.
Take a Ride Through History
Take a Desert Scenery Tour flight and see the Sonoran Desert in three different warbirds each with their own viewing experience: C-47 “Old Number 30,” SNJ/T-6 Texan, or the Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane.
New! Behind-the-Scenes Open Cockpit Tours

This is a great place to visit. They have many, many planes on exhibit, inside and outside.
After my presentation on American Airmen in WW2 @AZCAF 1st time on a B-17. Fantastic, a true "sentimental journey" for me. A great museum!
Was so cool to see my fave WWII bomber up close! Thanks @RKSAirport and @AZCAF #MaidintheShade
