History

Since 1999, the Texas Air Museum at Stinson Field has been dedicated to telling the story of Texas and San Antonio's vital role in the developement of military air power. It also pays tribute to aviation pioneers, technical acheivements in the realm of aviation, and above all, pays respect and honor to those who gave their lives to defend freedom.

Most attention in the area of vintage aircraft centers around World War II, and the Pacific and European theaters of that conflict. The Texas Air Museum not only represents that era, but is unique in also covering in detail the early period and "golden-age" of aviation. Here you can also learn about the famous "Flying Stinson Family", and why San Antonio is considered to be the birthplace of American military aviation.
