Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing
The Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing was formed in 1971. The Minnesota Wing was the very first charter unit of the national headquarters wing of the Commemorative Air Force and operated as a maintenance support arm to help the CAF’s mission of preservation and its ever growing fleet of rare aircraft.
We depend on contributions of its members, private individuals, and businesses to keep us flying! Maintaining vintage aircraft that haven't been produced since World War II is a very costly proposition. Most parts (if even still available) are rare, and cost a premium. If a needed part is not available it must be custom manufactured, usually at a great expense.
As a WWII Museum, our primary goal is education. Visitors have the opportunity to get close to our rare collection of military aircraft, view our museum display cases, and see our motor pool vehicles. You may be able to witness our aircraft fly, depending on the day. Our hands on approach gives people a chance to not only see history, but to be a part of it.
We offer tours for - school groups, colleges, Eagle scouts, Senior groups, families, international tourist, and so many more.
For those who have a passion for history, aviation, or just helping out a good cause, the Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing is a great place to visit or volunteer!
Your donations go towards keeping the history of our aircraft, vehicles, and artifacts alive for generations to enjoy.
