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.

September 5-7, China National Aviation Corporation ("CNAC") Reunion, at San Francisco International Airport
HFF's DC-3 is the only remaining aircraft of a once-great airline, CNAC. By special arrangement, our DC-3 will be displayed and open to the public for the CNAC Reunion. HFF patrons who wish to join us for the weekend should contact Visitor Services. We plan to leave the afternoon of September 5th and return mid-day on Sunday, the 7th. Weather permitting, we will fly the Oregon coast at low altitude. Too good to be true? Not really. Join us for the CNAC events or simply enjoy a weekend in San Francisco.
