Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum In Danger of Shutdown

Museum Has The Largest Collection Of Historical Aircraft, Flown By Marine Corps Aviators, In The World

Our history and the courageous people who made the best of it happen are too often ignored or left to fade away by those who really should pay it the proper respect. Unfortunately; more evidence of that situation has reached us here at ANN.

On April 1, 2021, the United States Marine Corps intends to permanently close the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum.

The future of the artifacts, research library, and aircraft, which belong to the Marine Corps, is unknown. We have been told that the closure is for financial reasons, even though the Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation has offered to assume full financial responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the Museum.

The Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum has the largest collection of historical aircraft flown by U.S. Marine Corps aviators in the world. Currently on display in an outdoor setting are 31 aircraft from World War II to the present. Indoors there are 8 galleries displaying artwork, photographs, uniforms and artifacts from World War I to today.

The museum has a 27,000 square foot restoration hangar and up until the most recent downturn, there were future plans to build a 90,000 square foot museum building for indoor displays.

If you wish to voice your disapproval, you can make a difference by joining the Foundation in a grassroots effort to save the Museum. Where to Write: Commandant of the Marine Corps Headquarters Marine Corps, Pentagon Washington, DC 20350-3000, Marine.Mail.FCT@USMC.mil
