WW2 Collection

Restored to wartime configuration and flying condition, our WWII aircraft are the heart of the collection. Counted among the collection are combat veterans, battlefield recoveries and survivors – flown continuously since the end of the war.

In the United States P-63s would be used for target practice! Provided with special armor plating and a system of lights to indicate when it had been “hit,” manned P-63s would be fired on by trainee gunners using special frangible bullets. The flashing lights earned these airplanes the nickname “Pinball.”
