The Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing was formed in 1971. The Minnesota Wing was the first charter unit of the national headquarters wing of the Commemorative Air Force and originally operated as a maintenance support arm to help the CAF’s mission. Today, the Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing is home to six aircraft, a large motor pool fleet, and a unique collection of World War II artifacts currently on display.

The Commemorative Air Force ranks as one of the largest private air forces in the world. The CAF is dedicated to Honoring American Military Aviation through flight, exhibition and remembrance. A non-profit educational association the CAF has more than 8,000 members and a fleet of over 150 airplanes throughout the country. The mission of the Commemorative Air Force is to honor the men and women who built, maintained and flew in these airplanes during the World War II. The organization believes that mission is best accomplished by maintaining the airplanes in flying condition and by taking the airplanes to the public and allowing them to experience the wonder of the aircraft in flight.
