Welcome toWurtsmith Air Museum
Our tentative opening* date is:
* This date will be changed if Federal or State guidance regarding COVID19, requires
the museum to stay closed or adjust our operating dates and times.
In late October 2020, our L-19 moved from the museum’s hangers to a heated hanger next to the FBO. Sanford and Ray with the FBO, and 3 Kalitta volunteers, will soon begin the restoration process and continue through the winter.
We are anxious to see this plane with its wings attached.
Check back for photos as the restoration gets underway.
