The Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing was formed in 1971. The Minnesota Wing was the very first charter unit of the national headquarters wing of the Commemorative Air Force and operated as a maintenance support arm to help the CAF’s mission and its ever-growing fleet of rare aircraft.
The CAF was founded to acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft which were flown by all military services of the United States, and selected aircraft of other nations, for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of Americans. Today, the Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing is home to six aircraft, a large motor pool fleet, and a unique collection of World War II artifacts that are on display. The CAF MN Wing attends many airshows, parades, and other events throughout the year. They also host two hangar dances and several museum events at their facility.
Their museum is open to the public, on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free of charge. Donations are always welcome and appreciated when visiting. Visitors will have the opportunity to get close to their rare collection of military aircraft, view the museum display cases, and see their motor pool vehicles. You may be able to witness aircraft fly depending on the day. Living History Flight Experiences can be purchased in the gift shop for a once in a lifetime opportunity to actually fly in one of their rare airplanes. Since their hangar and museum are located at an actual operating airport, something interesting is always happening just outside the hangar door.
