Planes of Fame Air Museum in Valle, AZ

  • Oct 3, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • Planes of Fame Air Museum, Valle, AZ

NOTE #2:  Russell Rogers told me about an abandoned airfield that's about 15 mi North of the Planes of Fame museum.  If anyone is interested, it might make for some interesting photos too.

NOTE: I've changed the date for this Meetup.  Hope you all can make it.

I've never been to this air museum, but is could be a great photo opportunity for those of us who like airplanes, war planes, or photographing in HDR etc.
Since the Museum is a fair distance away, and there isn't one best place to meet, I suggest we make carpool plans separately, and plan to meet at the museum at 9:30 am.

General Admission $6.95
Children under 12 years $1.95
Children under 5 years Free
AAA members (with current membership card) $6.00
Active duty military Free

As more and more aircraft were restored and the Planes of Fame collection grew, an additional display facility was opened in Valle, Arizona in 1995. Located halfway between Williams, Arizona and the south rim of the Grand Canyon, this facility houses over 40 of the Museum’s aircraft, many of which are also flyable. Our mission is to preserve aviation history, inspire interest in aviation, educate the public, and honor aviation pioneers and veterans. The Museum is dedicated to the preservation, perpetuation and exhibition of historical aircraft, and to the men and women, both famous and unknown, who devoted their lives to flight.

Hours of Operation
The Museum is open every day of the year, with the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and occasional special events. Normal hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Driving Directions
If approaching on Highway 64 from the North or South, exit Mustang Way at the Grand Canyon-Valle Airport. The Planes of Fame Air Museum parking lot is the second driveway on your right after the Airport Operations Building and just before you get to the large Lockheed C-121A Constellation parked out in front of the Museum.

    How about meeting at your house at 7:30am?

      Ok, but I may still be in my jammies... Seriously, 7:30am is fine.

    Eric, I think we should meet at your house and go from there. We could car pool it.

      Great. Anyone wants to carpool from my place is welcome. There's plenty of room to park. Let me know if anyone needs my address.
