    Welcome to the 4th annual Warbirds Over the Beach. If you have followed the growth and development of the Military Aviation Museum over the past 4 years, you have seen many new additions, not only in the ever-growing collection of planes but in the number of new buildings.

    During the last twelve months, several planes have been added to our flying collection. Additionally, the German Luftwaffe Cottbus hangar is scheduled to be finished this year, and when it is, it will house our impressive German plane collection.

    We are pleased to report that once again we have one of the only two flying Avro Lancasters in the world attending the air show. Flying from Canada, this is not only a very costly exercise but will be giving us the rare opportunity to view such a magnificent machine. The only other flying Lancaster is still owned and operated by the RAF. Last year, it flew over the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

    Thank you for being part of such a memorable occasion celebrating the opportunity to see such classic planes in flight and to pay tribute to the men and women from a generation that is rapidly fading, but will certainly never be forgotten.

    A show like this takes many months and thousands of hours of preparation, and our thanks must go out to the many veterans, re-enactors, musicians, volunteers, vendors, and staff that help events like this be such a huge success.

    When walking around the airfield and hangars please stop and show your appreciation to the veterans who are sharing their experiences and re-enactors who portray their units so accurately for their service and support.

    Sincerely,David Hunt, Director

    Military Aviation Museum

    Welcome to the 2012

    The Military Aviation Museum displays and provides a permanent home for dozens of World War Two and earlier vintage flying aircraft in Virginia Beach. The museum was founded in 2005, and its ongoing mission is to preserve, restore, and fly these historic aircraft and to allow a new generation to experience and learn from what their fathers, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers might have endured on the lonely airfields and in the skies so very far from home.

    The founder of the museum has spent years collecting and restoring these beautiful aircraft. As time went on, the passion for obtaining and restoring these rare aircraft eventually laid the foundation for todays Military Aviation Museum. In the process, it was learned that the real discovery was not just the aircraft themselves, but the history they were part of and the stories of the brave men and women who flew them.

    The Military Aviation Museum is truly a living museum that continues to grow. Several new aircraft are continuously undergoing restoration to be added to the museums collection in the coming months. At the same time, an authentic German hangar from 1934 is being reconstructed at the west end of the property. Bring your family and friends often and enjoy exploring whats new in history. Buy a family membership and return as often as youd like. For information about scheduled flight demonstrations, seminars, and visiting aircraft, please call the museum at (757) 721-PROP or visit www.MilitaryAviationMuseum.org.

    Virginia Beach artist Sam Welty created the custom artwork for the 2012 Warbirds Over the Beach air show. This years Warbirds Over the Beach artwork features four British aircraft flying over London during World War Two. The Supermarine Spitfire in the forefront was one of

    the planes instrumental in the victory of the Battle of Britain. This aircraft and two others depicted in the art, the de Havilland Dragon Rapide and de Havilland Tiger Moth, are all owned by the Military Aviation Museum. The fourth, the Avro Lancaster, is from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, Ontario. It is one of only two Lancasters still flying today, and we are fortunate to have it join us for the Warbirds Over the Beach air show. You can purchase copies of the 2012 poster in the Museums gift shop, and visit Sam Welty online to see more of his amazing artwork: www.AngelFire.com/art2/largemurals/.
