About the Book

The purpose of this handbook is to provide aviation enthusiasts with a simple checklist on where to find the surviving retired military aircraft that are preserved in the state of Hawaii. The majority of the “Hawaii Warbird Survivors” are on display outdoors as gate guardians at Hickam, Wheeler and Kaneohe. A number of volunteer organizations and museum staffs in Hawaii have done a particularly good job of preserving the great variety of American combat veteran aircraft, displayed here. Hopefully, as more aircraft are recovered from their crash sites or are restored, traded or brought back from private owners, they too will be added to the record. The handbook lists the aircraft on display in Hawaii alphabetically by manufacturer, number and type. This list is also appended with a brief summary of the aircraft presently preserved within the state and a bit of their history in the US military.
