Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Historical Organizations

Mission: The 475th fighter group historical foundation actively collects, preserves and provides for display, memorabilia related to the 475th fighter group in world war ii and all p-38 related activities in general. It has actively supported the construction and display of a museum hanger for the 475th fighter group at the planes of fame flight museum at chino california airport. Additionally it has accumulated many historical items from the actual members of the 475th fighter group. These items are being cataloged, stored and offered for display to the planes of fame facility as well other similar venues in the united states. In 2014, a secured and temperature storage facility was obtained to store items available for display or awaiting further cataloging - preparation for display. In 2016, pacific aviation museum pearl harbor became a site for an additional permanent exhibit of the 475th's activities.

Programs: During 2014, the 475th fighter group hanger at the planes of fame museum was maintained with additional display cases and artifacts. Additional memorabilia was cataloged as volunteer time was available. Discussions are ongoing with other museums about assisting with this cataloging and preservation activities. The website www. 475th. Org continued to be updated with photos and stories of the wwii fighter group. Included in this website is the digital presentation of the group's periodic newsletter with reports on recent events and stories about the group's members. In 2016, the addition of a significant exhibit at pacific aviation museum pearl harbor (pamph) was a crowning moment. Most of the grant money was used by pamph to construct this exhibit on behalf of the 475th in time for the 75th anniversary of pearl harbor. The other expenses were to prepare exhibit pieces primarily for that pamph display (p38 cockpit for example).
