On Sunday February 27th 2011 my family and I went to visit the Hickory Aviation Museum for the first time, and we really enjoyed it, Jim Malcolm was our tour guide and he was great, this man really know's his history when it come's down to the aircraft at this museum.
The indoor displays are kept clean and everything has its own history to it.
The aircraft currently sitting out on the flight line are in good shape and well kept, alot of work still needs to be done to them, but over all they look very good, alot of pride went into the restoration of these aircraft and it show's another good thing about this museum is it's potential for growth, and believe me, this museum has alot of potential in my opinion the Hickory Aviation Museum is well worth seeing and is second to none, I would say its a world class aviation museum.

I am sorry.......just saw you post here!! I didn't know this existed!! The most plausible explanation of the smoke bomb is for aerial search and rescue. I think it was used to mark a downed pilots location for rescue vessels, float planes, etc. We are very grateful for your donations!!

I have seen the aircraft collection that the Hickory Aviation Museum has on it's web site, as well as the News Forum and other important items of interest and I am very impressed with what I have seen so far, they a small aviation museum, but they have tons of potential for new growth in the future, with a very caring group of Museum Staff and Volunteers It's clear to see that the aircraft there at the Hickory Aviation Museum are in good hands and I recommend a day long visit to this particular museum to any one and every one.
To the Staff and Volunteers of the Hickory Aviation Museum, keep up the great work.

Its been awhile since any comments have been posted. The Sabre Society has opened up a museum at the terminal building of the Hickory regional airport. We have added a F-14D Tomcat and A-4L Skyhawk in recent months. We know have eight aircraft on display, as well as 2 that are hangered, thanks to the Navy, Airforce, and N.C Forest Service. The planes are parkedon the tarmac and an indoor museum with displays and a giftshop.

Greetings! I understand there is a small jet now residing at the Sabre Society. My Uncle told me he had donated it, and I would love to come see it. I believe it is a jet of European origin. Also, may I also visit sometime to otherwise help with the restoration of aircraft? His brother, my dad, was a career Army pilot and loved planes; I have caught some of that love for aviation, and I'd love to visit and possibly help out. We travel from Raleigh, so the visits would have to be only occasional, but it would be an honor to visit and help in any way. Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you!

IN REPLY TO MR. ADAMS, YES WE DO CARE. THE 7 MEMBERS OF THE RESTORATION TEAM SPEND MANY HOURS EACH SATURDAY WORKING ON THE AIRCRAFT. THIS IS ALL VOLUNTEER WORK AND MOST SUPPLIES ARE PAID FOR OUT OF OUR OWN POCKETS. AND, AS FOR NEEDING HELP, YES WE DO. WE NEED AS MANY ADDITIONAL VOLUNTEERS AS WE CAN GET. WE WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY FOR YOU TO COME TO THE AIRPORT ON SATURDAYS AND HELP US RESTORE THE AIRCRAFT.
