Airforce Thunderbirds Logo

The Thunderbirds have been the U.S. Air Force demonstration squadron since May of 1953. Flying their multi-role fighter jet, the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the team performs in air shows as well as flyovers for various events. These demonstrations help to showcase the skill and professionalism it takes to be part of one of the finest fighting forces in the world. Airshow demonstrations typically consist of six aircraft flying in formation and performing acrobatics. Like most performers, the pilots and crew are usually available for meet and greets.

Castle Air Museum
Atwater, California
The Castle Air Museum affords visitors from the region and throughout the world the opportunity to learn the costly sacrifices of the men and women who designed, built, maintained and flew these aircraft into hostile skies to defend freedom and liberty with many making the ultimate sacrifice. The Museum also serves to educate on the past milestones in aviation and what the future of aerospace may hold in store. Castle Air Museum, located in the heart of California’s San Joaquin Valley is the largest aviation museum between Southern California and the State of Washington with over seventy restored vintage military aircraft on static exhibit with more to arrive in the future! The Museum is adjacent to the former Castle Air Force Base, now Castle Airport, and officially opened to the public in 1981 as a non-profit 501c3 organization with a mission “to preserve military aviation heritage for future generations.” Today the Museum has evolved into a premier showcase for families, history buffs, schools, tourists, and aviation enthusiasts. OUR COLLECTION The collection includes vintage military aircraft dating from pre-WWII to the present on approximately 25 acres of the Museum’s beautifully maintained grounds. Locating, restoring, preserving and displaying these historic treasures is a real challenge. Often aircraft are acquired in pieces from diverse locations, shipped to the Museum, and under the direction of talented and knowledgeable volunteers restored to their former grandeur. These aircraft, prior to being preserved by the Castle Air Museum have survived neglect, being targets for weapons testing, and have escaped the salvage torch to remain as testimonials to all who have served our nation and that of America’s allies to protect freedom and democracy. Complimenting, the outdoor exhibits is a wonderful indoor display which houses a fascinating collection of military artifacts including military uniforms, a cockpit simulator, historic photos, aircraft equipment and much more highlighting aviation milestones of the past century. A constant fundraising effort is required to maintain the museum, acquire aircraft exhibits, improve the facility to better accommodate our visitors to improve their experiences is constant. The Museum receives no government assistance at all. The Museum attributes its success to the generosity of local businesses, individuals, volunteers and members of the Museum that is responsible for Castle Air Museum developing in to a premier showcase of military aviation history, preserved for posterity.

The USS Hornet Sea, Air & Space Museum mission is to utilize USS Hornet and the collections, exhibitions, and educational programming to promote awareness and understanding of history, science, technology, and service. Take a step into history and explore what the USS Hornet Sea, Air and Space Museum has to offer. With docent led and self-exploring tour options there is something for the entire family to enjoy. We have the largest collection of Apollo artifacts on the West Coast as well as a robust collection of aircraft and helicopters from World War II to the Vietnam War. The USS Hornet was launched in 1943 and from 1944 onwards was involved in every major Aircraft Carrier action for the rest of the war in the Pacific. The USS Hornet shot down more enemy aircraft than any other Aircraft Carrier in the War. Just before the end of the war the USS Hornet was damaged by a typhoon and had to return to port for repairs. She did participate in Operation Magic Carpet Ride to help bring home thousands of servicemen from the Pacific after the war. During the Korean War the USS Hornet was undergoing a major refit so she did not participate in that conflict. During the Cold War and the Vietnam War the USS Hornet had been outfitted as an Anti-Submarine Carrier and served several tours in that capacity. Finally, the USS Hornet participated in the Apollo space program by recovering the capsules and astronauts from the Apollo 11 and 12 missions, the first and second missions that landed men on the moon.
