WHO WE ARE
The CAF was founded to acquire, restore, and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft flown by all military services of the United States, as well as selected aircraft of other nations, for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of Americans.
More than just a collection of airworthy warplanes from the past, the CAF's fleet of historic aircraft, known as the CAF Ghost Squadron, recreate, remind, and reinforce the lessons learned from the defining moments in American military aviation history.
This is is a seat at the campfire, surrounded by an extraordinary group of aviators, mechanics, WASPs and veterans. We have been charged with telling the story to a new, younger generation because they deserve what we all have -- heroes to call their own. We will do this by channeling something the Greatest Generation instilled in all of us: boundless patriotism, pure invention and hope.
