The Flying Leatherneck Museum
The Flying Leatherneck Museum at MCAS-Miramar showcases the history and story of Marine Corps aviators and their ground crews. On display are 31 aircraft dating from World War II to the present day as well as artifacts, uniforms and photographs. Experience Marine aviation from a pilot’s perspective during Open Cockpit Days.
The museum is a one of a kind U.S. Marines aviation museum. Developed by a dedicated museum staff and many volunteers, and strongly supported by the Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation. This command museum is located at MCAS Miramar San Diego, and is funded entirely by our generous donors. It is the only museum in the world dedicated to preserving the incredible contributions made by Marine Corps aviators and their ground support personnel. When finished, the museum will tell the story of Marine Corps Aviation-aviators and the Marines that put them in the air and kept them there.
Their restoration staff works tirelessly to restore these planes to their original glory. Exhibits are rotated on a regular basis in order to provide variety to visitors.
