The treasures of the Flying Heritage Collection are presented within the social, political, technological and economic context of their time, from an international perspective.

For each nation involved in world conflicts, designing and delivering a mighty air fleet wasn't all that was needed to fight the enemy. Sacrifices were also made by the general citizens, who had to ration or forego domestic goods – metal, cloth, gasoline, food – to equip their armies.

While the Flying Heritage Collection showcases the spectacular warbirds and technologies of 1935-45, its exhibits also shine a light on the humanity at the homefronts.
