ReunionsTour The Museum

reunion homeMoving forward, all reunions will be held on the second weekend in August. The location for 2018 is TBA. Stay Tuned!

Tour the MuseumThe new 475th Fighter Group Historical Foundation museum is now located at the Planes of Fame Air Museum at the Chino Airport in Chino, California. The stories and memorabilia of this highly decorated group, which flew the P-38 in combat, are now permanently housed in a new display hangar constructed entirely by the members of the 475th. The 475th Fighter Group hangar was donated to Planes of Fame Air Museum in October, 2009, and becomes the new home of the Museum’s Lockheed P-38 Lightning. If you haven’t been to Planes of Fame Air Museum in Chino, CA recently, make sure you stop to see this great new addition to the Museum.
