The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum houses flying aircraft. All of our antique airplanes have been meticulously restored from the inside out. And, unlike the aircraft at most air museums, our aircraft still fly! Be clear on this ... it's not that they "can" fly, they DO fly.  We take our aircraft out as often as we can, and we give them the workout that they want and deserve.

Most of our aircraft were flown for the purposes of personal recreation, some were used as work horses, and others were flown for military reasons.

Enjoy our list of selected airplanes of the permanent collection below. This list is current as of December 2015.
