Virtual Museum Spotlight: Air Heritage

Let aircraft from the past guide you through the rich history of flight! A representative from Air Heritage will discuss the unique background of this working museum and restoration facility. Learn more about the rare WWII aircraft currently residing in the hangar and discover what aviation artifacts you may see during your visit. Additionally, a representative from Beaver County Historical Research and Landmarks Foundation will talk about three driving historical trails of Beaver County - Lewis & Clark; George Washington; and Underground Railroad. Following the presentation there will be an opportunity to ask questions and receive personalized recommendations for your trip!

ABOUT AIR HERITAGE:

Air Heritage Museum opened in 1990, after a chance encounter between two aircraft enthusiasts. Different types of aircraft continue to be restored there, so the museum is considered a true “working museum.” In addition to the repair and restoration work, the Air Heritage Museum displays photos from the history of flight and today’s flight technology, artifacts from the early days of aviation to the present, and memorials to two local men who were killed in action during WWII.
