The museum is a one of a kind U.S. Marines aviation museum. Developed by a dedicated museum staff and many volunteers, and strongly supported by the Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation. This command museum is located at MCAS Miramar San Diego, and is funded entirely by our generous donors. It is the only museum in the world dedicated to preserving the incredible contributions made by Marine Corps aviators and their ground support personnel. When finished, the museum will tell the story of Marine Corps Aviation-aviators and the Marines that put them in the air and kept them there.

Our museum is proud to have more than 48 aircraft’s in its collection. Our restoration staff works tirelessly to restore these planes to their original glory. Exhibits are rotated on a regular basis in order to provide variety to our visitors.
