Whether you are looking for information on vintage planes or looking to surround yourself with a group of like-minded plane-loving people just like you, Facebook is the place to go. Below are the top ten Facebook pages pertaining to aviation in all its splendor.
This page is the online social media presence for the “aircraft restoration and maintenance division of the Virginia Beach Military Aviation Museum.” These vintage aircraft specialists use Facebook as their online playground – posting pictures galore along with videos and specific plane updates as they work to restore old planes to their former glory.
The sole mission of the Military Aviation Museum Facebook page is to share their love for the history of aviation with the world – at over 24,000 followers strong, they are definitely achieving that mission, all with world-class information, photos, sneak peaks of planes, and more. As they are home to what they proudly refer to as “one of the largest private collections of First and Second World War, and Korean War era fighters, bombers, trainers and seaplanes,” this Facebook page is a must for anyone with a love for planes; especially for those with historic relevance.
Whereas the previous two Facebook pages dealt with historically relevant planes and information, the Future of Flight Boeing Facebook page is a haven for forward thought in the world of aviation. Their location has hands-on exhibits and interactive areas galore to help get the creative juices of both young and old flowing. They post often to their Facebook page, so even if you are far from their brick and mortar location, you can still share in the wonder of discovery and the excitement of what is in store for planes of the future.
While the journey from 10 original aircraft to over 150 has been a long one, our mission has never changed. It is the Mission of Planes of Fame Air Museum to preserve aviation history, inspire interest in aviation, educate the public, and honor aviation pioneers and veterans. And although the Museum spans the history of manned flight from the Chanute Hang Glider of 1896 to the Space Age of Apollo, many more chapters remain to be written and many more stories told before the vision of a young Ed Maloney is finally fulfilled.
