About Commemorative Air Force Dixie Wing


The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to flying and restoring World War II aircraft.  Based in Dallas, Texas, the organization has more than 13,000 members and operates a fleet of more than 165 World War II aircraft.  The CAF was founded to acquire, restore and preserve in flying condition a complete collection of combat aircraft that were flown by all military services of the United States, and selected aircraft of other nations, for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations of Americans. More than just a collection of airworthy warplanes from the past, the CAF’s fleet of historic aircraft, known as the CAF Ghost Squadron, recreates, reminds and reinforces the lessons learned from the defining moments in American military aviation history.

The Dixie Wing, based in Peachtree City, Ga., was approved as the 83rd CAF unit on Feb.28, 1987, and has since displayed its collection of vintage World War II aircraft in numerous air shows throughout the United States. The wing is a non-profit, tax-exempt “flying museum” that relies on contributions of time and funds to carry out its mission. For more information about the CAF Dixie Wing visit www.dixiewing.org
