Yanks Air Museum was officially opened to the public in 2001 with the clear goal of preserving the history of American aviation. Over the years, Yanks has acquired a collection of more than 200 historically significant aircraft, many of which have been restored to airworthy condition.
As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, Yanks strives to serve the community by honoring veterans, inspiring the youth, and seeking to educate the public about this incredible and heroic part of American history. Yanks frequently serves as the location for both nostalgic reunions between old pilots and their craft as well as the first time many young future pilots may ever step inside a cockpit.
Located at the west end of the Chino Airport, the Museum sits on 10 acres with 170,000 square feet including: 2 display hangars, a restoration hangar, and an outdoors display known as “The Boneyard”.
The Yanks team takes pride in its reputation for historically accurate restorations. This is facilitated by a fully functional restoration shop manned by a full time staff of skilled mechanics and craftsmen as well as a dedicated and knowledgeable group of volunteers.
Yanks currently houses a vast array of unique and interesting aircraft. Enter one hangar and be greeted by a scale replica of the 1903 Wright Flyer. Enter the next hangar and bear witness to the amazing design of the F/A-18 Hornet. A simple stroll through the museum will take you through more than 100 years of aircraft development. Learn about Amelia Earhart and Chuck Yeager. See how a radial engine operates. Step back in time by climbing in the cockpit of our classic Lockheed Constellation.
