Heritage Flight formations of vintage aircraft alongside contemporary fighters serve as a living memorial to the men and women of the U.S. Air Force past and present. With as many as 60 Heritage Flight demonstrations taking place across the U.S. and overseas in any given year, the Heritage Flight Program has supported hundreds of events in its 15 years, attracting millions of viewers to everything from air shows to funerals, sporting events to parades.
In 2010, the Air Force Heritage Flight Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was formed to keep this popular program flying. Today, the core of the Heritage Flight program remains true to its original vision: honor the past, welcome the future, and provide an aerial monument to the achievements of the U.S. Air Force.
