Aft section on display at the Planes of Fame Air Museum. Lettering on the Type 22 fuselage denotes this Zero was a war effort contribution. At the time, Japanese towns and villages, occupied territories, companies, schools, associations and individuals contributed. Naming ceremonies were conducted when several aircraft were christened together. The tail code and blue slanted band belong to Tainan Air Group, with two horizontal bands indicating this was flown by a chūtai leader. This Naval Air Group produced famous aces like Hiroyoshi Nishizawa, Saburō Sakai, Jun-ichi Sasai and Toshio Ōta.

White 11 on display at Planes of Fame Air Museum in the markings of 1./JG 400, the first Komet Staffel. A two-wheeled red and white dolly that was attached to the retractable skid is visible in front of the replica. It would drop off as the Komet became airborne. Flight testing for the world's first operational rocket-powered fighter was carried out by Erprobungskommando (EKdo) 16 at Bad Zwischenahn. Operational fighters were flown by JG 400 under command of Luftflotte Reich, with its Staffeln typically moving in the axis of Brandis to Salzwedel, Nordholz and finally Husum to end the war.

Delivered to United in July 1953 as N37568 "Mainliner Des Moines", it served until October 1968 when it had flown 32,296 hours. In December 1971 it was acquired by the Fairbanks-based Aero Retardant Inc. who converted it as a fire bomber, becoming Tanker 52 / D2. The following year it was transferred to the sister company Pacific Alaska Airlines, and operated until 1980 when it was sold to B&D Aircraft Inc. for parting out. After lingering at on at Chino for many years it was finally broken up c.1990, the nose section being noted at The Aviation Warehouse at El Mirage, CA. in October 1992.

On display at Planes of Fame Air Museum. The F4U-1A had the higher canopy with reduced framing as compared to the F4U-1 "Birdcage," which improved forward visibility. It benefited from a water injected P&W R-2800 engine. Field modifications were made to some F4U-1As to fit bomb racks.

Volksjäger on display at the Planes of Fame Air Museum. This He-162 of 2./JG 1 "Oesau" was flown by Staffelkapitän Ltn Gerhard Hanf from Leck. It carries the wolf's head emblem of III./JG 77, which was Hanf's previous unit based in Romania. The engine unit is painted in RLM 81 and the tail fins in RLM 76. After its capture, the aircraft went to Cherbourg in dismantled condition to be shipped to the USA. The He-162 was flown only once at Muroc Dry Lake by legendary test pilot Bob Hoover and donated to the Univ. of Kansas. It was acquired by Eddie Fisher and then Ed Maloney for the museum.

Airworthy Warhawk inside the hangar at Planes of Fame Air Museum. This combat veteran was delivered on 22 Jun 1943 to the RCAF. It destroyed a Japanese Fu-Go fire-balloon bomb over British Columbia on 10 Mar 1945. After the war it went to several private owners. It was acquired by the museum in 1960 and restored in 1980. The aircraft has featured in the films "Pearl Harbor" and "Valkyrie." It is painted in the markings of the 325th FG. This MTO Group wore the distinctive black and yellow checkertail on its P-40s, P-47s and P-51s.

Airworthy P-2 inside the hangar at Planes of Fame Air Museum. The Swiss Air Force needed a trainer to allow easy transition to its Bf-109s. The P-2 was designed using a Bf-109 undercarriage and Argus As 410 engine, first flown on 27 Apr 1945. This P-2 was taken on charge by the Swiss Air Force. Sold to a private owner in the UK in 1981, it found its way to the USA and was acquired by the museum. It is painted in Luftwaffe colors and is being used by the museum's pilots to transition to the Hispano HA-1112-M1L.

Rare FB-5 with the emblem of VF-6B on display at Planes of Fame Air Museum. Originally A-7104, this is one of just 27 constructed for the U.S. Navy. They were delivered from the Boeing factory in Seattle on 21 Jan 1927 by placing the aircraft on a barge in Seattle Harbour and sent to the awaiting CV-1 USS Langley, from where they made their first flights. FB-5s were USN's first fighters intended for carrier operations. These aircraft served with VF-1 on USS Langley, VF-6B aboard USS Saratoga, VF-3B at San Diego and finally with Marine squadron VF-6M "Red Devils."

Red 6 recovered in 2003 on display at Planes of Fame. Built in 1939 as an E-1, this combat veteran participated in the Battle of France and BoB. It was converted to an E-7, carrying a 300L drop tank or as a Jabo with an ETC 50 or ETC 500 bomb rack. The Emil went to newly formed II./JG 5 'Eismeer' on 22 Mar 1942 at Petsamo and was flown by Lt. Wulf-Dieter Widowitz. While on an escort mission, it was shot down on 4 Apr 1942 by a 2nd GIAP Hurricane Mk.IIb. Widowitz put the aircraft down on a frozen lake. The 36-victory ace was killed on 28 Jul 43 while piloting a Go-145A from Kirkenes to Petsamo.
