This restored, historical TBF/TBM "Avenger" is now available for your event!

VERY popular due to its uniquely folding wings and huge size
(largest single-engined aircraft used in WWII)
A rare flying museum exhibit that allows the public to walk on sturdy, safe steps over the wings to view pilot & turret gunner crew stations
Historically significant carrier-based aircraft used in both Atlantic and Pacific theaters of WWII, the Korean conflict, and beyond.
This aircraft type was flown by President George H. W. Bush when he was shot down - twice!
Five TBMs in Flight 19 were lost in the "Bermuda Triangle" in December, 1945. This very aircraft was used in the recreation filming of "Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind" - a flying movie star!
Our TBM Avenger was the "Cover Girl" on the National CAF Dispatch magazine. The photo was taken at annual CAF AirSho held the second weekend of October each year. All CAF aircraft are brought "home" where we reenact all the aerial battles of WWII with the original aircraft. The CAF is also expanding into Korea and Vietnam aircraft in its collection. Modern military aircraft are also featured in this, the best airshow of the year - every year! Click on the magazine cover at right to view the article. Click to view article

Note the aircraft shown is not ours, but ours is very much like it.
The Commemorative Air Force Goals:
  1. 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.
     
  2. To construct or obtain museum buildings for the permanent protection, maintenance, and display of these historic aircraft, period artifacts, and documents as a tribute to the thousands of men and women who built, serviced, and flew them and to build and organize the "Combat Airman Hall of Fame."
     
  3. To perpetuate the spirit in which such combat aircraft were flown in the defense of our nation, in the memory and hearts of all Americans.
     
  4. To establish an organization having the dedication, enthusiasm, and Esprit de Corps necessary to operate, maintain, and preserve these aircraft as symbols of our American Military Aviation Heritage.
     
  5. To receive gifts, legacies, and grants of money and property of every kind and to administer the same for the purposes herein stated, and to do anything necessary or proper for the accomplishment of these purposes; to lease, purchase, hold, have, use, and take possession of and enjoy fee simple or otherwise any personal and real property necessary for the uses and purposes of the corporations; and to sell, lease, alienate, or dispose of the same at the pleasure of the corporation and for the uses and purposes for which said corporation is formed; and to buy and sell real or personal property and to apply the proceeds of sale, including any and all income, to the uses and purposes of the corporation.
