The displays at the Maine Air Museum provide a tour of Maine Aviation History from the earliest attempts at flight to the aircrafts landing every day at the Bangor International Airport. We also maintain an archive of Aviation History and have hundreds of pictures, stories, and artifacts for you to view.
Some of our displays and artifacts include:
- A piece of the balloon that a Maine-born Aviator used to set the world record for highest flight and take the first picture of the curvature of the earth.
- A map of and stories about the numerous military crash sites throughout Maine.
- Information on why the disappearance of The White Bird, the second greatest aviation mystery, is important to Maine.
- History about a Maine-born Aviator and astronaut who flew into space.
