I do volunteer at the Museum. Aside from the fact that we have some very interesting and important aircraft, the Museum is providing information concerning the past history of the Southern Calif. aerospace and aircraft industry. The people and aircraft from the World Wars are disappearing very fast . The Museum is providing insite and education, to children, our KLAS program--Kids Love Aviation Science, and to anyone interested in the grand aviation history of the South Bay. We apppreciate and need the support of all who are interested and we will provide any and all information and assistance that is needed. Please visit us at 3315 Airport Drive, Zamperini Field, Torrance Airport. We are located just West of the control tower and our name is on the side of the hangar. We hope to see you there.
