Commemorative Air Force

The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) - the world's largest flying museum - is dedicated to honoring America's military aviation history by providing hands-on experiences that educate and inspire audiences of all ages. 

Located at Dallas Executive Airport, the organization's Henry B. Tippie National Aviation Education Center (NAEC) is home to several iconic World War II aircraft including the B-29 Superfortress FIFI, B-24 Diamond Lil and L-26B Ike's Bird. The facility also includes a theater featuring two compelling short films that tell the story of the Tuskegee Airmen and the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), America's first female military pilots. Additionally, the NAEC displays a collection of World War II artifacts and authentic Aviation Nose Art from vintage warbirds. The facility also hosts STEM education and aerospace camps for pre-K through high school students that foster the development of 21st century job skills. 

The CAF hosts airshows across the country, including the annual "Wings Over Dallas" event at Dallas Executive Airport each fall. 

Founded in 1957, the CAF has amassed more than 170 World War II aircraft, the largest collection of vintage military warbirds in the world. Through the work of more than 11,000 volunteers across 83 units, CAF's educational outreach programs reach an estimated 20 million Americans each year, providing compelling living history experiences.
