Welcome to the Highland Lakes Squadron WWII Air Museum

The Highland Lakes Squadron museum welcomes you to visit our collection of authentic WWII artifacts as well as our “working” aircraft hangar where we bring WWII aircraft back to life. Specific exhibits include a turret from a B-24 bomber, a cutaway radial engine of the type used in the AT-6/SNJ, a WW-II machine for making dog tags, a WW-II instrument flying trainer (Link Trainer), and an air-to-air missile.  Guns from United States, Germany and Japan, knives and bayonets, various home front items, newspapers, uniforms, helmets, aircraft and ship models are on display.  Our museum emphasizes the contributions of the common soldier, seaman, and airman. All artifacts in our museum have been donated, principally by local residents or people having contact with local residents.

Flying aircraft in our hangar include our 1944-model C-47 "Bluebonnet Belle", 1944-model SNJ T6 Texan, 1939-model PT-19, and 1946 L-17 Navion.  You are welcome to take a guided tour of each of these aircraft.

We are an all-volunteer non-profit unit of the Commemorative Air Force and we do ask for a small admission into the museum.
