The CAF Southern California Wing is a volunteer organization with members from many different backgrounds. The wing is dedicated to preserving the history of WWII aircraft for generations to come. This CAF location is assigned 12 authentic military aircraft that are maintained and operated by their volunteers. In addition to flying aircraft, the wing also has a wide-ranging collection of World War II artifacts displayed in a Hangar Museum. Due to COVID restrictions, their opening hours are Friday and Saturday, 10 AM to 4 PM, and Sunday, 12 PM to 4 PM. They are closed on Monday-Thursday and some holidays. The newly expanded wing at over 55,000 square feet includes three hangar complexes to house their museum, flying aircraft, warbird restorations, and gift shop.
