About Our Auction

CAF Warbird Expo 2016 Silent Auction is a non-for-profit fundraising effort to support the mission of the Indiana Wing Commemorative Air Force. All proceeds will be used to honor Hoosier Veterans and their families thru events such as this, Veteran Rides Program, and furthering our living history initiatives. We feel the best way to honor those who have sacrificed on our behalf is to keep the machines and memories alive for future generations. Please help us with this mission by placing a bid on any of our auction items. This years goal is to raise $20,000 to help restore our newly acquired C-45 aircraft. This aircraft will be used to fly several veterans at a time throught the midwest.


About Commemorative Air Force, Indiana Wing

The CAF is a nonprofit aviation association dedicated to Honoring American
Military Aviation through flight, exhibition and remembrance, by maintaining a
flying museum of classic military aircraft.

Collecting flying warbirds for half a century, the Commemorative Air
Force (CAF) is the largest flying museum in the world. The CAF is a
nonprofit aviation association dedicated to Honoring American
Military Aviation through flight, exhibition and remembrance by
maintaining a flying museum of classic military aircraft.

The CAF has more than 10,000 members and its fleet of more than
160 historic aircraft is distributed to 73 units located in 24 states for
care and operation. These units, comprised of CAF members and
volunteers, restore and operate the planes which are viewed by more
than 10 million spectators annually.

More than just a collection of flyable warbirds, the Commemorative
Air Force’s fleet of historic aircraft, known as the “Ghost Squadron,”
recreate, remind and reinforce the lessons learned from the defining
moments in American military aviation history. The demands of aerial
combat drove the great technological advances in aviation that
occurred during and after World War II. Many different types of
aircraft were developed, often designed for very specific missions.
Members engage with the mission to protect these rare flying
monuments to freedom. They keep them in flying condition, repair,
rebuild and pilot these unique assets. Future generations will benefit
from the CAF’s preservation efforts, educational programs, museum
exhibits and airshows.

Please help us keep'em flying as a memorial for all those you fought to keep the spirit of freedom alive!
