“A diverse collection of old warbirds”

When the closure of Castle Air Force Base was announced in 1994, a group of dedicated enthusiasts in the Atwater-Merced area formed a non-profit organization called the Castle Air Museum Foundation, Inc. Their purpose was to assume custody of the collection of aircraft. It was their dream to build a museum in which faithfully restored historic aircraft could be exhibited for public enjoyment. Castle Air Museum represents history in a way the whole family can share with our awe-inspiring majestic warbirds.  To stand under the wing of the Convair RB-36H Peacemaker or the Boeing B-52, you can imagine the sky around the bombers filled with enemy fighters!

This air museum is one pf the best kept secrets and one of the best on the west coast. There are over 50 aircraft on display including a VC-9 which flew as Air Force one and an SR-71spy plane. Well worth the visit

I recently travelled with Amtrac from Sacramento to Fresno and was surprised to see the plane museum near the tracks. Will have to return to have a closer look

"Air museum and trailer park" was the phrase that I saw on the highway from Sacramento to Fresno. Not expecting much but, having no place to be I decided to stop. Boy, was I glad that I did. I'm not going to ruin the surprise but, if you are an airplane buff, you'll be glad you stopped too.
