The museum's Exhibit Hall houses our gift shop, multimedia theater room, library, and part of the current collection of aviation memorabilia spanning the 20th Century (1900-2000).  Our hangar houses the flying aircraft such as a Russian Mig-17F and a Czech L-29 Delfin trainer.  Aircraft on permanent display include an FJ-4 Fury and a T-2C Buckeye on loan from the Naval Aviation Museum, as well as an F-105D Thunderchief, F-111 Aardvark, T-33 Shooting Star, and others on loan from the Air Force Museum. See thumbprint pictures below for the full list of aircraft we have on display.

Some memorabilia are available for display at charity events and conventions in the East Texas area.  Please contact us if you are interested in showing any of the museum's "traveling displays".   The board of directors at the current time plans on rotating any memorabilia loaned or given to the museum.  Please contact us if you are interested in making donations or gifts of memorabilia relative to our mission.
