Curator - Dr. Gary Leiser

Located at Travis AFB, the museum was created in the 1980's, and has been unofficially renamed the Jimmy Doolittle Air and Space Museum, after famous aviator, Jimmy Doolittle who was born in Alameda, CA.

Access Post 9-11
People need to call in advance to be escorted on to the base and depending on the days' activities this is not always possible. The goal for the Travis volunteers is to build a museum off base and they are currently in a fund raising mode. Travis hosts the largest air museum in Northern California housing bombers, fighters, transports, trainers, helicopters as well as air rescue and observation planes.

Displays
The museum has several displays on the Tokyo "Doolittle Raid" bombing mission and artifacts from veterans of the mission, and hosted the Doolittle Raiders Reunion in 2003. The war in the Pacific is also highlighted which includes the Bataan Death March.

Aircraft Collection
The museum includes a large collection of wartime and post-WWII. Among aircraft used in the Pacific are: BT-13, PT-19, Piper L-4,  Stinson L-5, and B-29 displayed outdoors.

B-29 "Miss America 62" Serial Number 42-65281
