“Operation Preservation: The Campaign to Restore the Planes” is your chance to play an important role in the restoration of the Museum’s iconic aircraft. Because these important artifacts “live” in Heritage Park, they are subject to the ravages of the southwestern weather – and they are showing it. All four current airplanes (the B-29 Superfortress, B-52B Stratofortress, F-105D Thunderchief, and A-7 Corsair II) are in need of paint and other attention.
You can play a crucial part in preserving history at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History by giving today. Your support of the restoration of some of our most important artifacts will mean that Museum can continue to display these iconic items as they should be, properly painted and cared for. Well-preserved aircraft on display would mean many more people will be able to appreciate the contributions of these important aircraft and remember the splendor of their service.
Not only must the Museum raise a lot of financial support (our goal is $200,000 in only two years), we must also raise some human resources! Because the planes need a lot of “hands-on” attention, we are hoping to raise a contingent of volunteers who will be assigned the actual refurbishment duties. Another way volunteers can help is to take our campaign to the community. To that end, we will establish a Speaker’s Bureau. To volunteer in any capacity, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 505-245-2137, extension 122.
