Mesa Air Museum: Arizona Wing of the Commemorative Air Force

So here’s a short video about my visit to the Mesa Air Museum. I have a love of flight and I almost went into the Air Force with a college degree to do photography for aircraft and flight situations. I probably would have also done video eventually 😉 This is a museum that is in the Phoenix area and it’s small but there are often visiting aircraft and you can actually book a flight on a vintage plane. I think I’m going to do that and maybe we can make some video of that too.

The Airbase Arizona Museum has on display many WWII artifacts and memorabilia from the War Years to the Home Front. Many of these artifacts have been donated to the Arizona Wing by veterans and their families wanting to see them displayed to the public. School children that are too young to know much about this time are now able to see and feel this part of our history through school field trips.

Today Airbase Arizona maintains and flys it’s premier aircraft the B-17G Sentimental Journey and the B-25J Maid in the Shade along with an SNJ, C-47 Skytrain/Dakota, C-45 Expeditor, PT-17 Stearman, and an L-16 Grasshopper. Restoration projects have included a MiG-15, Grumman Guardian, and a Sikorsky helicopter. The Arizona Wing has on display an F4 Phantom, A-26 Invader, SE5a, Schweizer TG-3A Glider and Mig 21, plus numerous visiting aircraft.
