Love Antique Airplanes?
Let's Go Find Them Together!

In 2020, the COVID pandemic cancelled most air shows. Some, like Oshkosh, held virtual events. Some aviation museums are starting to reopen slowly. Hopefully people are busy in hangars restoring antique airplanes and readying them for when we can all get out and travel again.

It's no fun to be grounded when you want to fly and explore.

We have had a personal setback too, with some health issues slowing us down.  We don't have the time to check on which venues are still viable and which are things of the past.

So... Post COVID our advice is to check with each air show or museum to see if they are open and operating.  Stay safe.

Antique airplanes, vintage airplanes, old airplanes... call them what you will.  We love them all.... antique, old and not so old.

We love and read all those glossy aviation magazines too, but we wanted to share what WE'VE found, and what YOU could find.

What's This? Not An Antique!? But It IS Vintage Now...

SR-71 - now an antique airplanes

With aircraft it's not quite the same as with furniture is it!? 

The oldest of the old aeroplanes are barely antiques by those standards...

And today even many jets are vintage aircraft....

...including the oh-so-sleek SR-71!                                                                              Click on images for gallery slide show.

OK... so we have a broad definition of "antique" when it comes to aeroplanes!                                                       

Now, speaking of oh-so-sleek... this is not a sleek commercial website.  This is our home grown website... done with a great love of aviation and a wish to share.  We hope you look around and enjoy it.

So Let's Find Those Vintage Aircraft

So what are we trying to give you here?  A site you can come to for information about where to find antique airplanes... in small hangars, in museums or at air shows around the world....

  • Where to find 'em...
  • Where to see 'em...
  • See 'em fly
  • Maybe even where to fly in one.

Because Mark worked for an airline, we've traveled the world for over 40 years.  We look for vintage airplanes.... any airplanes where ever we travel.

We've written about our travels at MouseTours Travels but we wanted a place to highlight vintage aircraft... so here we are sharing our adventures and discoveries with you. 

We visit museums, but we also look for airports where pilots with old planes congregate, and we love air shows that feature classic aircraft.

See where we went in 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016 or earlier.

We'll Need Your Help For This

That's right... We'll need your help; we can't find them all, so we want your tips... suggestions... stories... and your favorites.  Even your questions.

Contact us or even better send us Your Contributions....  Your favorite museum, air show, plane or flying story will go up as a page authored by you.  (And we've made it easy... really!)

What You'll Find Here... Which Air Shows, Museums, Planes?

What we write about depends on where we travel... and when we find time to write about all the fun. 

Most aviation museums and air shows we write about will be in the U.S. since that is our home base, but we're trying to include great international places to see antique airplanes... vintage aircraft that you just won't see in the U.S.

So fasten your seatbelt in preparation for take off.
