During the twentieth century, civil and military aviation has played a prominent role in the history and development of California. Commercial operators have exploited the advantages offered by aircraft to overcome its unique challenges of geography and climate. By virtue of Californias comparative size and strategic importance on the West Coast of the continental USA, a wide variety of military aircraft have been based there through the years.The list of military aircraft types that made up the tapestry of California aviation is as extensive as the list of legendary figures who have contributed to its amazing history. While most of the military aircraft types no longer grace the airspace over California, many can be viewed in their former splendor as they stand as gate guards or museum exhibits. This booklet provides a comprehensive guide to where these restored aircraft can be found. Complementing the details concerning aircraft specifications and roles, the author has included many facts. Finally, the descriptions of the recovery, restoration and preservation efforts stand as a tribute to the many volunteers who have devoted time, energy and financial support to ensure this rich heritage is preserved.

California Warplanes

This is an aviation handbook designed to be used as a quick reference to the classic military heritage aircraft that have been restored and preserved in the state of California.  The aircraft include those flown by members of the US Air Force, the US Navy, the US Army, the US Marine Corps, the US Coast Guard, the Air and Army National Guard units, and by various NATO and allied nations as well as a number of aircraft previously operated by opposition forces in peace and war.

The interested reader will find useful information and a few technical details on most of the military aircraft that have been in service with active flying squadrons both at home and overseas.  150 selected photographs have been included to illustrate a few of the major examples in addition to the serial numbers assigned to American military aircraft.  For those who would like to actually see the aircraft concerned, aviation museum locations, addresses and contact phone numbers, websites and email addresses have been included, along with a list of aircraft held in each museum’s current inventory or that are on display as gate guardians throughout the state of California.  The aircraft presented in this edition are listed alphabetically by manufacturer, number and type.

Although many of California’s heritage warplanes have completely disappeared, a few have been carefully collected, restored and preserved, and a good number of these have been restored to flying condition.  This guide-book should help you to find and view California’s Warplane survivors (publication date April 2012).

Chino, Yanks Air Museum, Chino Airport Southwest Side, 7000 Merrill Avenue, Hangar A207, Box 35, 91710.  (909) 597-1734.  The museum aircraft have been restored in-house with great attention to detail so that both flying and static aircraft are considered exemplary examples of their type.  Great care and effort has been made to conform to the original manufacturer’s specifications in all restoration projects.  The existing museum campus extends over ten acres and includes 176,000 square feet of display space under roof including restoration and storage buildings with additional open-air storage areas.  The collection now numbers over 170 aircraft.  Work is now underway to create a second Yanks Air Museum facility in Greenfield, California.  The facility will include 440 acres (1.8 km2), while the campus will be centered on the new 250,000-square-foot (23,000 m2) museum facility. An active airport will support both museum flight operations and the private aviation needs of museum visitors and local aviators.  Other features of this master planned complex also include an advanced-technology education center, a quality level hotel and spa, winery, restaurants, service facilities, shops, and a recreational vehicle park.

Douglas C-124C Globemaster II (Serial No. 52-1000), c/n 43909.  The museum was given the C-124 in August 1982. The aircraft had been stored for many years outside at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland where it was used as a storage shed. Transporting the aircraft by ground to California would have been prohibitively expensive so the decision was made to fly the aircraft to the museum. Volunteers joined with members of the Georgia Air National Guard's 116th Tactical Fighter Wing from Dobbins Air Force Base to restore the C-124 to an airworthy and ferryable condition.  The aircraft was then ferried from Aberdeen to Dobbins AFB in Georgia where members of the 116 TFW completed the aircraft's restoration.  The aircraft was then flown cross country to Norton Air Force Base in California. After a photo session over the Golden Gate Bridge the C-124 arrived at the Jimmy Doolittle Air & Space Museum at exactly 1400 on 10 June 1984.  This was the first recorded flight of a C-124 in nearly a decade.
