We are preserving the legacy of the United States Army Air Forces at Wendover Airfield and the sacrifices of ordinary citizens and soldiers during the extraordinary events of World War II.


Our focus is to preserve the historic location and resources that were dedicated during World War II to developing the United States Air Forces into a formidable group that could help win the war. We are providing a venue that helps explain World War II history, promotes ongoing learning and helps develop an interest in the sciences and technology associated with aviation and engineering.
