#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving celebrated the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (11/29). As you begin your holiday shopping, please consider giving to the 1940 Air Terminal Museum.

Your gift will help kick start our 2017 strategic goal initiatives into high gear and provide much needed funding to ensure our fundraising ventures are successful.
We are so thankful for all of your continued support.


Amazon Smile

Here’s an easy way to support the museum while doing your holiday shopping:

Support us when you shop on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #StartWithaSmile at http://smile.amazon.com/ch/76-0612294 and Amazon donates to Houston Aeronautical Heritage Society Inc.
This is a super easy way to make a donation. All you have to do is shop on Amazon just like you normally would (aside from adding the word “smile” to the beginning of the web address) and select Houston Aeronautical Heritage Society, Inc. as your charity of choice. This will not add on any hidden fees or cause your item to cost you any additional money. Amazon will simply donate a percentage of your purchase to the museum. How great is that?!

On Saturday September 3, 2016, raffle plane 9.0, N7980B was delivered to Miami, OK to the winner, Mr. Dennis Moore!

Museum president Bernard Morris and volunteer Blair McFarlain delivered the plane to a very happy owner!

Our day started early, with a sunrise pre-flight.


We planned to make one fuel stop in KOSA – Mount Pleasant, TX, which, as we discovered, is also the home of the Mid America Flight Museum!



Bernard approves!



On the ground in Mount Pleasant!


The plane is fueled and ready to go!


Bernard even got in a little bit of planespotting while we walked to see the museum.


LOTS of cool planes in here, we will definitely be back!








When we landed at Miami, OK, we were greeted by an enthusiastic winner and his son.   Mr. Moore is retired from the FAA and is an A&P mechanic and will have a lot of fun with his new plane!



A toast to a job well done while waiting for our flight back to Houston!

The 1940 Air Terminal Museum would like to share a special thanks to Barry, Talia, and Karen with Smashing The Glass for featuring our venue.

In January, we had the honor of hosting these two special people’s wedding.  Smashing The Glass and Talia’s beautiful recollection of the event made for a wonderful article.

They were able to allow readers to get a true glimpse into the uniqueness and beauty of this wedding.

Thanks to the bride, groom, and all vendors involved, once again the 1940 Air Terminal Museum had an event for the ages.

Read all about it here!
