Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum (FHCAM) is home to a rare collection of vintage military aircraft, tanks, combat armor and other technologies. Nearly every plane and piece of armor on display is restored and maintained to the highest standards. In fact, most of our artifacts are  in working condition.


Maintaining a vintage operational collection is painstaking work! Our mechanics are subject matter experts and masters of their craft. They have expertise in a wide variety of foreign and domestic aircraft, vehicles, and machinery that is generations old, coupled with the skill to perform the work, which often involves fabricating parts from scratch. They perform their work out on the museum floor, so it’s common for guests to see them actively engaged in a project. 


Nothing compares to hearing the Hellcat’s engine start up, watching the Sherman Tank roar around the track, or feeling the percussive blast from the 88 Flak Gun firing blanks. We hope you will join us and partake in the vibrant, living history that we offer!
