Collections Overview

The museum collection involves several divisions, including Collection Management, Research and Restoration Division. The Collection Management Division provides stewardship for the museum system’s considerable aircraft and artifact collection, ensuring accountability for all U.S. Air Force historical property, while the Research Division manages the museum’s ever-expanding document and imagery collection. The Restoration Division restores aerospace vehicles to historically accurate and visually striking levels using a variety of skills, ranging from machine and woodworking expertise to precision craftsmanship in sheet metal and painting.

Please note: organizations interested in borrowing these or any aircraft from NMUSAF must meet loan eligibility requirements.
