Preservation Projects

The Museum currently has two aircraft preservation projects. One of them is being restored while on display in the Chuck Schumacher Aviation Airpark.  The other is being restored and will be added to the Airpark when it is completed.

Our T-33 Shooting Star is on display, but the preservation is not complete.

If you know of an aircraft that we might be able to acquire and restore for static display, please let us know.

If you would like to learn more about our preservation projects or help us, please call the Museum at 309-663-7632 or email us at [email protected]. Ask for our Preservation and Maintenance Director. We always can use various kinds of assistance, from manuals, tools, parts and expertise.
