Identifying World War II Aircraft Parts
FREEMAN ARMY AIR FIELD MUSEUM INC
The museum is reliant on currently identified parts so as to best present our displays.
We are falling behind in getting accurate information this year and all we can do is put parts on display and ask for help to identify them.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
