Museum Aircraft Inventory Collection Spans WWII and Desert Storm

Meticulously restored aircraft – from World War II to Operation Desert Storm – are on display for all visitors aboard the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum. We are constantly restoring aircraft and adding them to those on display. A sample of our inventory:

  • World War II aircraft
  • Korean War aircraft such as the F9F-8P Panther and AD Skyraider
  • Vietnam aircraft including the F-4 Phantom and Huey gunship
  • Desert Storm aircraft such as the A-6 Intruder and F/A-18 Hornet
  • Newest additions include the F4F Wildcat, SH-60 Seahawk, and HUP-2 Retriever

Don’t miss several climb-aboard cockpits and aircraft.

The museum’s air restoration teams are working on several vintage aircraft that will become part of the USS Midway Museum’s expanding “air wing” on display. For detailed information on the history of the museum’s aircraft inventory, visit the Midway Aircraft Restoration Web site.  Aircraft now under restoration include (as of Fall 2014):

  • FJ Fury
  • Vought F7U-3 Cutlass
  •  HO3S Dragonfly
  • F9F Panther
  • EA-6B Prowler
  • F7U Cutlass
