During the twentieth century, civil and military aviation has played a prominent role in the history and development of Washington. Commercial operators have exploited the advantages offered by aircraft to overcome the unique challenges of geography and climate. By virtue of Washingtons strategic location on the continents northwest flank looking out over the Pacific and facing Russia, 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 Washington 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 Washington, 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.

Formerly the Fairchild Heritage Museum & Air Park, this museum is located near Spokane International Airport at Thomas Mallen Road and Geiger Blvd.  PO Box 19459, 99219.  Fairchild Air Force Base, 92nd Combat Support Group, 99011.  Fairchild AFB is located 20 km southwest of Spokane.  The host unit is the 92nd Air Refueling Wing (92 ARW) assigned to Air Mobility Command’s 18th Air Force. Established in 1942 as the Spokane Air Depot, the AFB is named in honour of General Muir S. Fairchild (1894-1950).  He was an aviator in the First World War who rose to become the Vice Chief of Staff of the USAF.  Fairchild AFB is also home to the ANG 141st Air Refueling Wing.  Both units fly the Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker.  Fairchild AFB opened near Spokane, Washington, in late 1942 as an aircraft maintenance and supply depot, repairing some 1,750 B-17s as wells as B-24s and other aircraft during the Second World War.  The 92nd Bomb Group and all its subsequent reincarnations have made the base their home since July of 1947.

The Museum’s collection of air and spacecraft is the most visible component of a wealth of aerospace-related artifacts. The Boeing 80A-1, salvaged from a junk heap in Anchorage, Alaska, was the Museum’s first aircraft acquisition. It took many years and an incredible amount of effort to get this airplane on display in a new museum in Seattle. Yet, it was the first aircraft of many. The aircraft preserved in the collection include:
