On March 31, 2021, the United States Marine Corps intends to permanently close the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum. It is the Marine Corps’ plan to break up the aircraft collection and give it away, sell it or destroy it. There is no current plan to dispose of the artifacts.

The Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, cared for and nurtured the museum for the past 21 years. We have been making every effort to work with senior Marine Corps leaders to develop a viable and sustainable alternative to closure.

If you are concerned, like we are, about the decision to close the museum and want the Congress and Administration to reconsider, please contact your representatives and share with them why the museum is important to you, kSan Diego, the Marine Corps and the nation.
