Historic Flight at Kilo-7 offers a collection of the most important aircraft produced between 1927 and 1957—all restored and airborne again.

Our mission goes beyond serving as trustees of an era. We want you to experience the roar of our F8F “Wampus Cat” taking off. Watch engineers at work restoring the aircraft to flying condition. Share the rush of viewing international treasures from all angles.

Whether you’re an experienced aviator, a student of history, or a newcomer to our world, we want to spark and fuel your passion—both for aviation and for epiphanies born from hard labor. Our heroes did not leap from the bathtub shrieking, “Eureka!” They scrawled a sketch on a piece of paper. Got interested in an impossible challenge. And then they dove into the work. The reward? Innovation that astonished both them and us, and that continues to change our world.

Berlin

Against all odds, we mustered fourteen aircraft for the penultimate flight of Berlin Airlift 70, our trip to Berlin.

Candy Bomber

I wasn’t sure how Germany and Germans would react to a D-Day Squadron trying to morph into a recreation of the Berlin Airlift. As with history, good people adjust rapidly to changed circumstances.
