Address(1)13001 Magnuson Avenue

    This museum unique to the State of Colorado is a tribute to American military airmanship and is the largest collection of vintage aircraft on the Eastern Range. On June 30 1972 the first aircraft a Douglas A-26 Invader arrived on site followed soon thereafter by a Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star.

    The other aircraft currently on display are on loan from the various military services with the exception of the McDonnell Douglas F-101 recorded as having a civilian owner.

    Located six miles east of the city on highway 50 at the Pueblo Memorial Airport the aircraft display and the International B-24 memorial Museum occupy space on what was the Pueblo Army Air Base during WWII. The museum is free and open to the public seven days a week.

    Members of the Pueblo Historical Aircraft Society a volunteer group of ex-military and civilian personnel manage and operate the aircraft display as well as performing the repair and restoration of the aircraft.

    The Society is open to all who wish to join and become a part of the team dedicated to preserving the aviation history of the city of Pueblo. The organization may be contacted by writing to Pueblo Historical Aircraft Society 31001 Magnuson Ave.. Pueblo CO 81001.

    In 1986 the Pueblo Historical Aircraft Society was requested to create a number of 8 foot by 10 foot display panels depicting the manufacturing and military history of the B-24 Liberator bomber of world War II fame. These panels were transported to Ft. Worth Texas where they formed a major display at the 50th reunion of the first flight of the B-24

    After the reunion the panels were returned to Pueblo for permanent display as a memorial to the B-24 training base of WWII which was in operation from 1941 to 1946. This display formed the basis for the International B-24 Memorial Museum which was formally dedicated on July 15 1989 by Colonel Robert Vickers. USAFR of Albuquerque New Mexico.

    The B-24 Museum is of special importance to the citizens of Pueblo and Pueblo County as it is a reminder of Pueblos military heritage and its place in military history. The Museum is also a reminder that thousands of aircrew members trained here and then went on to military assignments in all the various theaters of operation.

    The main purpose of the museum is to honor all those involved in the design production and military deployment of the B-24 Liberator. It is unique in that it is the only known museum dedicated to a specific airplane.

    Although the museum lacks an actual B-24 to display the indoor collection of B-24 technical and design data military uniforms airborne radio equipment photographs flight log books and other military aviation memorabilia accurately portrays the B-24.

F-100D 55-2841 was converted to a drone. I assume it was shot down somewhere over the gulf of Mexico

Just a note to update information about our museum. We now have two hangars, providing shelter for all but three of our aircraft. We have also begun collecting military vehicles and now have a half-track, weasel, 6x6, and more on the way. We are currently working to establish STEM education programs at the museum and intend to make the Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum the destination to visit in southern Colorado. (I am rating us world-class in recognition of the number of international visitors we have.)

This is a nice little museum worth a stop on your way through Colorado. Not far off I-25 going north or south between Denver and New Mexico. Some of the aircraft are in sore need of some TLC but some are really well restored. Don't forget your camera; they "pose" really well against that Colorado deep blue sky.

This has been a great air museum to visit. It has more of the WW2 history that I am interested in. The model displays are detailed and true to history. Unlike many air museums, this one continus to improve each year with changes and new displays.

My father trained in 1n 1944, before deploying to Italy. He visited this part spring, accompanied by one of my brothers. Dad said he could see the spot, as plain as day, that he had a forced landing. You even have the newspaper phot of his plane, sitting in a field. Pops is 85, and his visit was the biggest thrill he has had in years. Thank you for you museum. I hope to visit soon.

Some great planes in this museum although some of the outside exhibits are showing signs of weathering. Not too many B29s about these days but they got one here.

I visited this museumin 2002 and was impressed with the display aircraft which they have. I surely wanted to see a B-24 but was grateful to find this museum. I was just shopping in Pueblo and was told about the Museum by a shopowner. Well Done. A lot of work has gone into this display.
