NATIONAL WARPLANE MUSEUM
We are dedicated to the preservation of WWII and Korean War era military aircraft, equipment, and the stories of those men and women who served our country at home and abroad.

If you have not seen the news we are sad to report that while working in support of an event Whiskey 7 suffered an problem with her #1 engine.
The airplane returned to the airport she was operating safely and we are in the process of replacing the engine with an overhauled unit.
We cannot say enough about our friends at D-Day Ohio and the North East Ohio Regional Airport as they continue to support our efforts.
A team from the museum went to the airplane last weekend and removed the engine and other parts and returned them to Geneseo for cleaning and inspection.
We have ordered a overhauled engine and it is expected to arrive in the next three to four weeks.
Between now and then the old engine will be stripped down and readied for shipment back to the shop as an exchange part.
The other parts will be inspected and cleaned of all possible residual oil and afterward installed on the new engine.
This entire process is expected to cost over $75,000 once the airplane is back in the air.
Both groups in Ohio are doing much to assist and we really appreciate their efforts.
Purchasing a ride on one of our airplanes or a purchase from our store will also help (and members get a 10% discount).
You can also use the “Donate” button at the top of our Facebook page or use the button below (donations are tax deductible).
It will be a tough period as we have several more events we are trying to attend through the end of the season.
Your help will be much appreciated and 100% goes to getting Whiskey 7 back into the air….
Thanks-The NWM Team
