Yanks Air Museum and Chino Airport Tour

Yanks Air Museum

Yanks Air Museum hosts one of the world’s largest aircraft collections, most of them airworthy. Painstakingly rebuilding these titans of American aviation history is hard work, with mechanics and craftsmen working by hand to return craft to their original state. We are provided a docent tour to view the aircraft and learn about their history, their stories and their journey from graveyard to restoration.
