The Commemorative Air Force® (CAF) was founded to preserve history by restoring historic World War II aircraft back to flying condition and to educate new generations of Americans on the value of military aviation in assuring our nation’s freedom. These airplanes, and the men and women who built, flew and maintained them – changed the world forever! We can never let them be forgotten. More than just a collection of airworthy warplanes, our fleet of more than 165 aircraft, known as the CAF Ghost Squadron®, recreate, remind and reinforce the lessons learned from a defining moment in American history. This history is worth saving… and worth passing on.
Your support not only helps honor our country’s heroes, but also educates and inspires today’s youth about the sacrifices that were made so many years ago.
