Welcome to the National Warplane Museum

The NWM will honor the members of the Greatest Generation who served their country during the Second World War by returning its flagship Douglas C-47 to the most storied place in her 70-year history; the skies over Normandy. The aircraft, affectionately known by her distinctive squadron marking, Whiskey 7, was the lead ship of the 37th Troop Carrier Squadron, dropping elements of the 82nd Airborne Division near St. Mere Eglise, France in the early hours of June 6th, 1944. Whiskey 7 will participate in the 70th anniversary commemorations by dropping members of the Liberty Jump Team over the original D-Day drop zones.

Founded in 1994, the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group Museum, now known as the National Warplane Museum, is dedicated to the restoration, preservation, display, and flight of aircraft of the World War II and Korean War eras, as well as the recognition of all United States Military personnel for their service and sacrifice.

Docents Needed

We will be needing extra volunteers over the spring and summer months, especially on Sundays. Even if you can only volunteer one Sunday, it will be greatly appreciated. With the name change, the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, and the Return to Normandy project we expect to see a larger number of visitors to the museum.

On weekends, l like to have two volunteers on-site. One to greet the visitors and oversee the store, the second volunteer to act as a tour guide. The hours are 10:00 am til 4:00 pm. We'll be having a Docent (tour guide) Refresher Course on a Saturday sometime this Spring. Any questions, call Donna at the office 585-243-2100 or email
