This Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum is the only museum in the world, dedicated to the primary purpose of preserving the history of Marine Corps Aviation. When finished, the museum will tell the story of Marine Corps Aviation ? aviators and the Marines that put them in the air and kept them there.
