Plane Talks will include more than a dozen aircraft subject matter experts, including veterans, active duty, former pilots, crew members, engineers, navigators, and more who will speak about aircraft throughout the museum including the B-1B Lancer, B-2 Spirit, F-22 Raptor, J-3 Cub, B-58 Hustler, Minuteman and Peacekeeper Missiles, B-25 Mitchell and others.

Plane Talks is supported in part by the Air Force Museum Foundation and its partner, CareSource.

100 Years of Heritage: National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, 1923-2023 will be in the Cold War Art Gallery, located in the third building. The exhibit will display the history of the museum, which is older than the Air Force itself! Historical photographs, maps, rare artifacts and memorabilia represent changes the museum experienced through the last 100 years. The exhibit also features the staff, volunteers, and the Air Force Museum Foundation’s contributions to the museum’s development, maintenance and growth. Future expansion plans are also included in the exhibit, which will remain in place until May, 2024.
