Mission:
Educating. Preserving. Honoring the Heroes.

Our mission is to develop and maintain the Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Museum: a World War II naval aviation Museum that educates young and old alike, to preserve history by honoring the memory of Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale and the men & women who defended freedom during World War II.
Results:
This Museum has been instrumental in preserving the memory of Flight 19, one of the great aviation mysteries. Flight 19 flew out of this Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale (NASFL) on 5 December 1945 to vanish into the Bermuda Triangle. In addition, 19 year old future U.S President George H. W. Bush lived at this base as an Ensign to train as a torpedo/bomber pilot. Since then, the vast complex of 200 buildings that housed the air base have been all demolished. All except for the Link Trainer Building #8 - our current Museum. After a long battle to preserve it, this building was added to the National Register of Historic Places. It is the only Military Museum in Broward County and the only building remaining from Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale in WWII.
