EAA Warbirds of America:  
Keep 'Em Flying!

Why do our members restore and fly ex-military aircraft? Why do our members go to great lengths to save one aircraft from extinction?

Quite simply, it's about the preservation of military aviation history and to tell a story. To see a warbird displayed in a museum brings a sense of wonder. But to experience the presence of a warbird with all of the senses is awe-inspiring. To touch it, to see it in flight, to experience flight, to hear the roar of the engine is nothing short of exhilarating.

That experience reminds us of the sacrifices made by veterans who flew these aircraft in combat in order for us to enjoy the freedoms  and these aircraft we take for granted today. Those freedoms are not without cost.
