Leading Edge Circle

The museum launched The Leading Edge Circle in 2014, to recognize donors who help support the museum and its operational aircraft. The sight and sounds of these historical aircraft taking to the sky bring a crucial part of our nation’s history to life.

Donations to this program help keep the great warbirds maintained for flight and also add artifacts and buildings to our growing collection. Leading Edge Circle donors are recognized for their support of the museum on a special donor display as well as in the museum’s annual report.
