This Dallaero Lodestar was still under restoration when this photo was taken. It has its props missing and the "Superman's Daughter" nose art has partly worn off, but other than that it appears to be in good condition. The aircraft made its first post-restoration flight here on 26 Nov 2011 and was later based at Mount Pleasant, TX, painted with USAAF insignia on fuselage and wings.

In 1987 this Convair was used by the NASA as a Space Shuttle Crew Escape System testbed. It was fitted with a CES (Crew Escape System) mockup on the left side of the rear fuselage. The aircraft was stored here at California City by 1993, and preserved by 1997, reportedly by a set-up called the California Museum of Air and Space.

As of Sep 1987 this Convair was used by the NASA as a Space Shuttle Crew Escape System testbed. This photo still shows the CES (Crew Escape System) mockup that was fitted to the left side of the rear fuselage. The CES was a candidate concept developed to provide crew egress capability during Space Shuttle controlled gliding flight. Actual tests of this system with this Convair began on 20 Nov 1987, whereby life-like dummies were pulled from the modified aircraft's side hatch mockup by tractor rockets. The aircraft had been stored here at California City by 1993, and preserved by 1997, reportedly by a set-up called the California Museum of Air and Space.

A rare Percival Prince preserved in poor condition in Frank Motter's Thunder Air Museum. In the 1960s this aircraft flew for the Decca Navigator Company as G-ALWH. During that time it was named "The Decca Navigator", which is still visible on the nose. Sold to the USA in Nov 1976 and left Biggin Hill, UK on delivery on 23 Mar 1977. It last flew in 1978 and was stored at Van Nuys, CA. It went through several owners without ever leaving there, before ending up in the hands of Frank Motter in early 2009. It was dismantled at Van Nuys in Feb 2009 and trucked to the museum the following month.

In Jan 1953 this old B-25C (ex USAAF 41-13251) was acquired by Howard Hughes's Hughes Tool Co., which had it converted it for executive use. It was fitted with rear doors, a bathroom and large bed, possibly for Mr. Hughes himself. It was wfu in the late 1950s and stored at Culver City, CA. In Jul 1974 they donated it to the museum, then still named the Antelope Valley Aero Museum. The museum closed in Jun 2015, and the B-25 was sold to San Simeon Air. It was dismantled in late 2015, and the forward and center fuselage was trucked to Breckenridge, TX for restoration. The aft fuselage, wings, engines and other parts were trucked to Nut Tree Airport at Vacaville, CA. The current status of this restoration project is unclear.

This unmarked Chickasaw at the Milestones of Flight Air Museum is usually quoted as 55-4943, but this is almost certainly not correct. That serial is quoted on a modification data plate in the cabin, but the fuselage main data plate quotes serial 53-4441. The latter is usually considered to be the most relevant and most reliable plate. Following the museum's closure in Jun 2015, this helicopter was moved to the Estrella Warbirds Museum in Paso Robles, CA in late 2015.

This Seabat was withdrawn for Navy service in Jun 1970, and later became N85128 with an owner in Fairbanks, AK, but it may never have been delivered. Eventually acquired by the museum circa 2008. Almost immediately after the museum's closure in Jun 2015, this helicopter was moved to the Estrella Warbirds Museum in Paso Robles, CA.

The Milestones of Flight Museum was formed by Lee Embree in the early 1970s, then named the Antelope Valley Air Museum. In 1986 the name was changed to Milestones of Flight Museum. This C-97 has been part of the collection since at least 1988. The museum closed in 2015, and although the exhibits were sold for restoration or offered for scrap value, this C-97 was still present by Mar 2018, as were the Argosy and the C-119.
