Combat Air Museum - Topeka, Kansas

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 45 aircraft representing WW1 to the present day, 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.

The Combat Air Museum is one of the few major aviation museums located on an active air field used by the United States Military. While at the museum, you may see Air Force fighter aircraft and Army helicopters in operation.
