We are committed to providing the best home for the aircraft and artifacts in our collection. Most of our aircraft have been moved out of the Hangar and can be viewed throughout our campus. Mahalo for your kokua!


Hangar 79 picks up where the story in Hangar 37 leaves off, documenting the rise of American air superiority that was established in World War II and continued to climb in subsequent decades in the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Gulf Wars.

This 80,000 square foot maintenance and engine repair facility also withstood the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, as evidenced by the blue glass windows riddled with bullet holes left by the battle. During World War II it was a maintenance and engine repair facility, filled with fighters, bombers and patrol aircraft that were based in Pearl Harbor or en route to the front lines.

Hangar 79 is the proud home of The Shealy Restoration Shop, a genuine aircraft restoration shop that brings the aircraft of decades past back to life. The Shealy Restoration Shop is filled with an array of vintage aircraft awaiting preparation for future display, including the legendary B-17 Swamp Ghost.
