Heritage Flight Museum, Bellingham

4.4
#5 of 6 in Museums in Bellingham
The Heritage Flight Museum (HFM) has been established by the Anders family to help educate the public so that they might understand and appreciate the contribution military aircraft, and the people that flew them, have made to our heritage, national security and freedom.

The primary focus of the HFM will be on US Army Air Corps and US Air Force vintage “Warbirds”: fighters, trainers, and liaison aircraft. Additionally, once a permanent facility is established, the HFM will add displays highlighting elements of the US Space Program, mainly the Apollo program.

In order to obtain the greatest exposure of the aircraft, the HFM will primarily display aircraft through flying and static display at their hangars in Burlington, WA. Additionally, aircraft may be displayed at air shows and other remote locations.

Besides aircraft displays, HFM plans to display aviation restoration projects, models, and memorabilia. Space flight memorabilia, historical presentations, and educational material will be displayed as well. Additionally, once a more permanent facility is found, the museum plans to develop aviation education and youth education programs. Heritage Flight Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • I saw this museum when it first opened some years ago and though they were half shut-down in the process of moving this Fall, it was still a treat. Usually there are many displays and a good number...  more »
  • This is a superb opportunity to see the old warbirds. These planes are still flown by local pilots. The pilots are often present and happy to tell you all about the planes in the Museum.  more »

  • Not very many planes here on the day of my visit. But the ones that were here have some very interesting history. Toured with a very knowledgeable docent who made our visit more enjoyable. There is a small space exhibit also. They are adding more space for future expansion.
  • Small airport with a surprising amount if historical documents inside. Fly days are fun - there are spaces for chairs (I think its bring-your-own) and Civil Air Patrol teens are available to help kids and adults use the flight simulator! My boys liked the simulator while my husband enjoyed the planes.
