Remembering the 75th Anniversary of D-Day

AMAZING DAY! On May 4th, 2019, the AMC Museum hosted events that connected people from around the world and today’s Airmen with actual paratroopers from D-Day with the same plane they jumped out of 75 years ago. The events allowed us to commemorate our service members, both past and present, as well as the amazing community that helped make today possible. I am proud and always overwhelmed with the AMC Museum Team’s staunch dedication and hard work. Thank you for honoring our heritage and creating a WORLD-CLASS event.

-John Taylor, AMC Museum Director

KB-50 Restoration Underway

KB-50J Superfortress Restoration Underway

The KB-50J Superfortress has arrived from MacDill AFB, Florida, transported by Worldwide Aircraft Recovery. The restoration crew have their work cut out for them after finding several areas of corrosion that will need to be treated before final assembly.

Below are several photos of the restoration crew hard at work.

We ask that visitors stay clear of the area where the KB-50 parts are lying as it’s considered a restoration construction zone.
