Mayday Ranch Aviation Museum is a 1000 acre, open-air museum in northeast Texas that displays retired military aircraft. Unlike other open-air aviation museums, each of our warbirds occupies its own unique and secluded acreage. Visitors are encouraged to touch, climb aboard, and explore each of the fuselages as they make their way along an extensive walking trail that connects each aircraft exhibit.
With the exception of our meticulously restored 1946 Lockheed PV2-D “Harpoon”, all of the exhibits at Mayday Ranch are salvaged aircraft—beautifully UN-restored! We offer an aircraft graveyard experience in a hands-on, family-friendly environment; the weathered bones of military bombers, jets, transports, and choppers come back to life to educate, captivate, and inspire.
Our primary on-site objectives are to preserve military aircraft and to foster the public’s appreciation of aviation history. Our primary off-site objective is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations. All of the proceeds from Mayday Ranch fund Christian mission efforts abroad.
NOTE: Mayday Ranch Aviation Museum is currently in the development & collection phase. The grand opening is projected for the spring of 2019.
