National Museum of World War II Aviation Tour
July 27 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The National Museum of World War II Aviation in Colorado Springs documents the role that military aviation played in the emergence of our nation as a world power during the Second World War. Through a combination of its aircraft collection, exhibits, interactive displays, and docent led tours, the museum tells the story of our nation’s tremendous technological advancements during the war, and describes the lasting social and economic changes that were essential to the success of the Allied war effort.
Through close relationships with collectors around the country, the museum displays a wide array of fully restored aircraft that represent all aspects of America’s involvement in World War II. Most of the aircraft are meticulously restored to flying condition, and many are flown at the museum on public demonstration days. The tour will include a visit to the WestPac Restorations facility which is adjacent to the museum.
WestPac Restorations, a premier World War II aircraft restoration and maintenance facility, is located on the north side of the museum campus. Housed in a state-of-the-art 65,000 square foot facility, WestPac Restorations is a highly specialized FAA-certified repair station that includes paint facilities, a prop shop, and a full service metal forming shop. WestPac has been closely affiliated with the museum since its inception, and allows public access to its facility through the museum’s docent-led tour program.
We are scheduled for the 12:00 noon tour which includes WestPac Restorations. We’ll meet at Cabela’s sporting goods located on the southwest side of the intersection of
I-25 and Ridgegate Parkway in Lone Tree. We’ll leave at 10:00 AM and convoy down to the museum which is located on the south side of Colorado Springs. Please note that there is an admission fee of $14.00 for adults and $12.00 for seniors. Contact Andy Mortenson if you have any questions.
