The 475th Fighter Group Historical Foundation museum is 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 permanently housed in a 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 is the 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 in to see us soon!
Told through graphics, videos, and artifacts from the men of the Fighter Group, their inspirational and accomplished stories are collected in the 475th Fighter Group hangar at the Museum. This hangar is also home to “23 Skidoo,” the Museum’s Lockheed P-38J Lightning, one of only a handful of flying P-38 aircraft.
