Welcome to the National Warplane Museum

Tillie has had a good, if not belated start to the season. On Thursday she heads East to Geneseo, NY to be part of "The Greatest Show on Turf", a World War 2 themed airshow held at the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo on the western edge of the finger lakes. https://nationalwarplanemuseum.com/airshow

Hope to see you there.

nationalwarplanemuseum.com We are a voluntary organization dedicated to the restoration and preservation of WWII and Korean War era military aircraft

[05/22/18]   Slowly but surely we're making progress on "Tillie's" winter/spring maintenance. Hopefully she will be back in the air by Memorial Day, if not, shortly afterwards.

[03/13/18]   Hopefully we can resume operations for our 2018 season once we get some warmer weather. It's been a long cold winter and we still have a few things to take care of before Tillie takes to the skies over Akron again.

[12/19/17]   Thank you to everyone who came out and supported Tillie this year. She's safely tucked away in her hangar for the winter and will take to the skies again next Spring. Wishing all our customers and friends a safe and merry holiday season and a happy new year.

Dave Brown of Dave Brown Airshows was kind enough to take time out of a busy schedule to fly Brian Rosenstein so he could take these fantastic shots of Tillie over the Galesburg countryside. Thanks guys!

[09/26/17]   Thank you to everyone that came out to the Medina airport on Sunday to enjoy the Wings and Wheels event. As you know we have had some fantastic weather and Sunday was no exception. Many people got to enjoy Tillie as she flew over and around the event. I want to thank the 16 people who flew with us and made our day there possible. I also want to thank the many people who worked behind the scenes to ensure that the day was a success, hopefully we can all get together again next year and do it again. Cheers.

Pictures of "Tillie"

Back in 2001 a talented draftsman by the name of Jim Morrow drafted these blue prints of "Tillie". I am not aware of the basis of the relationship between "Tillie's" former owner and Mr.Morrow. When I purchased "Tillie" the seller was kind enough to include Jim's drawings. Enjoy.
