Bring the family out to the Hagerstown Regional Airport to climb aboard and sit in the cockpit of the historic Fairchild C-82 and C-119 Flying Boxcars and PT-26 WWII trainer aircraft. See exhibits and other museum aircraft such as the 1928 Kreider Reisner KR-31 biplane, 1943 Fairchild PT-19 WWII Trainer and Fairchild 24, all built in Hagerstown. The museum owns twenty historic aircraft, fourteen of which were built in Hagerstown. Step back in time and experience a memorable flight in the museum's 1943 Fairchild PT-19 Primary Trainer!
