Homefronts

The treasures of the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum 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 & Combat Armor Museum showcases the spectacular warbirds and technologies of 1935-45, its exhibits also shine a light on the humanity at the homefronts.
