Commemorative Air Force Museum, Mesa

4.8
The CAF was founded to acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft which were flown by all military services of the United States, and selected aircraft of other nations, for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of Americans.

More than just a collection of airworthy warplanes from the past, the CAF's fleet of historic aircraft, known as the CAF Ghost Squadron, recreate, remind and reinforce the lessons learned from the defining moments in American military aviation history.

  • A great museum of military aircraft indoors and outdoors. A B-17 and C-47 were available for onboard tours. A great presentation of ancillary aircraft equipment was on display. A tour of the restoration area was also available. Many docents were around to guide and answer questions. Located at Falcon Field, Mesa, AZ.
  • This place is a great small museum. We happened to be there when the two bombers were taking off and it was mesmerizing to see them wind up and take off. I found the docents to be eager to chat and interesting.
  • Fabulous visit and flight on the B17G Sentimental Journey in March 2018! The staff, docents and volunteers were all helpful, informative and fun to be with! The visit could not have been better! Even my wife who considers airplanes boring loved it.
  • What a great place to take an aviation buff or just family/friends to spend an hour or two. Its a pretty decently sized museum. The hangar the planes are located in is clean, well-labeled, and informative.
  • What a tremendous museum with some great aircraft. I really enjoyed the B-17 Flying Fortress and P-51 Mustang. You really can't go wrong spending a couple hours here.
