The Combat Air Museum in Topeka, Kansas was organized in the Fall of 1976 as a wing of David Tallichet's Yesterday's Air Force. In 1979 the group reorganized under the name of Combat Air Museum and relocated to hangar #602 at Forbes Field, a World War II Liberator airfield.

Today the Combat Air Museum has over 30 aircraft representing WW1 to the 1980s, as well as a variety of aircraft engines, military vehicles, a simulated field kitchen, a field chapel, a German POW barracks, and military aviation art. You may speak with volunteers who are working on restoration of some of the aircraft.
