War Eagles Air Museum
Mission Statement: The War Eagles Air Museum is committed to educating and inspiring the next generation by preserving and showcasing the history of aviation, with a focus on the aircraft and artifacts used by the United States during defining times of conflict. Our mission is to provide a dynamic learning environment that engages visitors of all ages, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of the sacrifices and achievements made to maintain our freedoms.
War Eagles Air Museum was founded by John and Betty MacGuire in 1989 as a way to share their love of aviation and history with the community. More than 30 years later, the museum features one of the Southwest’s largest collection of beautifully restored historic aircraft from the World War II to Vietnam Conflict eras, along with a large collection of vintage and historic automobiles, motorcycles, and various military and transportation artifacts through the decades. The museum’s vast hangar space has also served as a location for several educational and social events, from school tours to weddings. The collection continues to evolve and grow, as the museum’s staff and volunteers strive to help new generations discover the significance of these amazing machines from their craftmanship to their place in American and world history.
