American Airpower Museum Presents Warbird Weekends Salute To American Airpower


In a patriotic salute to American Airpower, the American Airpower Museum will host a series of Warbird Weekends on selected Saturdays (weather permitting) for the remainder of their 2022 flying season, July 16th through October 29th. Come and watch extremely rare aircraft, featuring the museum’s squadron of vintage WWII bombers and fighters, as they perform exciting flight demonstrations.  The American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport is Long Island’s only flying military aviation museum.
The American Airpower Museum (AAM) maintains a fleet of operational historic WWII aircraft. Weather permitting, the museum may fly one or more of the planes in our collection; a North American B-25 Mitchell Bomber, Douglas C-47B Skytrain Transport, Grumman TBM Avenger Torpedo Bomber, North American P-51D Mustang, Curtiss P-40 Warhawk, North American AT-6 Texan Trainer and a WACO UPF-7 Biplane.  Visitors will have the opportunity to see these iconic aircraft in action as they start their engines, taxi to the runway and take to the sky over Long Island as they did over 80 years ago.  Bring your cameras to catch amazing photos of the planes as they roar by overhead.
In addition to watching exciting flyovers, visitors can actually take a once-in-a-lifetime flight in one of three aircraft, a C-47B Skytrain, AT-6 Texan or red WACO Biplane!  Folks interested in flying should stop by and book their flight!  For information on flight experiences throughout the Warbird Weekends flying season (weather permitting), please visit the museum gift shop Wednesday through Sunday, 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Hangar 3, 1230 New Highway, Farmingdale, NY.  Or call Jacky at (516) 531-3950.
