During World War II, The United States produced 295,000 aircraft. Combat aircraft made up over 200,000 while support aircraft amounted to just under 100,000.
Seventy years later The Missouri Wing of the Commemorative Air Force maintains and flies to this day 3 of those rare aircraft just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. Our goal and mission is "Educate Through Living History" by allowing future generations to see, partifipate with, and re-live the lessons learned from the defining moments of American military aviation history.

St. Charles County Smartt Airport
We are proud to support Smartt Field where all three of our air crafts are maintained and stored. Additionally its historic WWII hanger serves as home to a few of those early aircraft that pilots who were trained here later flew when they were graduated to basic and advanced training.
