I see that the museum is being relocated. According to one website they want to get away from operational and static display aircraft. So what's going on? Where will the aircraft go?

As mentioned in other posts the museum in Geneseo is actually the 1941 Historic Aircraft Group. I've been a member for several years. Each July they host an airshow commonly known as the "Greatest Show on Turf". The museum has a number of aircraft including a B-17 (movie Memphis Belle), C-47, C-119 among others. The newest addition is very rare B-23 Dragon!! Visit the museum at: http://www.1941HAG.org And consider becoming a member. Free admission anytime, free admission to airshow.

Please make a correction to the Main Inventory List. The Martin B-26 Marauder is actually a Douglas B-26 (A-26) Invader. You can double check this on the Website of the Wings of Eagles Discovery Center.

Fuddy and the pigboat were the centerpieces of the museum. Way to sell'em, nimrods. All we have now are the memories. What a shame.

Has anyone ever considered moving the museum to Havana in Cuba? There's more than enough room and space, also aircrafts there can't suffering the effects of the upstate NY bad weather.

Has anyone ever considered moving the museum to Syracuse? There's more than enough room at Hancock Airport on the old unused runway. The 174th has some old warbirds sitting on the corner of the base(F-16,A-10,F-86,F-94,etc) that could be put on display as well. There's more than enough traffic to sustain a museum financially.

I go to this museum every time I return to the United States to visit my in-laws which is roughly every 2 years. I have to rate it as a 5. I never get bored with this museum, itís a tribute to the staff who work there, the way the aircraft are looked after and the passion shown by the volunteers. . My son who is now 5 absolutely loves the place and the first thing he wants to do when he gets back to the States in August is go up to see the museum. With absolute due respect to Ken I hope his comments are incorrect as it would be a travesty for this museum to downsize or worse close down due to the financial pressures. Being an Australian with an American wife Iím extremely grateful for what the United States has done for Australia particularly during WW2. It is imperative that museums such as this are kept open as it reminds not only Australians but the rest of the world the incredible heroism and ingenuity shown by the American people. I only hope that this museum is kept operating so I can keep taking my 2 young kids back over and over again so I can educate them on the sacrifices and dedication shown by the American people. For some Europeans a tour of the National Warplane Museum should be made compulsory.
