About the Flying Heritage Collection
The aircraft in the Flying Heritage Collection are rare treasures of military aviation – a testament to
the era’s engineering skill and humanity’s spirit during the world conflicts of the 20th century. On rotation in our working hangar are military
artifacts from the United States, Britain, Germany, Soviet Union and Japan, acquired by Paul G. Allen and restored with unparalleled authenticity
to share with the public. FHC is operated by Friends of Flying Heritage, a 501(c)(3) organization committed to educating people about these rare
historic aircraft and artifacts. The collection is currently experiencing rapid growth, bringing in exciting new wonders like the Republic F-105
Thunderchief, de Havilland Mosquito and dozens of new artifacts in 2017.
