Why should you donate to our Annual Campaign? Your tax-deductible donation helps preserve our U.S. Air Force history and heritage and funds aircraft restoration, new exhibits, and educational programs.
We have two major restoration projects—the C-119B Flying Boxcar and the KB-50J Superfortress (pictured above)—and we're obviously excited about both! As you've seen in recent Hangar Digests, our recently acquired C-119 is a Korean War hero, the only surviving plane that dropped portable bridge sections directly responsible for troops being able to survive the 1950 Chosin Reservoir Campaign. The KB-50's add-on jets enabled it to refuel fighters, filling a huge void in air-refueling capabilities. Restoration of both planes is expected to be complete by late 2019.

We are pleased to still be able to offer our $50 donors a chance to win either a sightseeing flight in a 1941 PT-17 Stearman or a giclée of your choice from our AMC Museum's Aviation Art series. Additionally, our $100 (or more) donors will also receive our 3-inch AMC Museum patch, a great addition to your flight jacket or ball cap.
