This is the entrance to the Museum, and also the departure point for the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center (AMARG) "Boneyard" tours. Here you may purchase admission tickets to the Museum and browse our Museum Store.
Inside the hangar you'll see a full-scale replica of the Wright Flyer, the first aircraft to achieve successful powered flight, as well as numerous vintage and modern aircraft, both civil aviation and military. Hangar 1 connects to the Spirit of Freedom Hangar, which houses the more rare and important aircraft in the Museum’s collection, including the Lockheed SR-71 “Blackbird”, the only remaining Martin PBM-5A “Mariner”, and the very rare North American F-107.
