The Jimmy Doolittle Air and Space Museum Foundation, with its Education Museum Foundation, is registered as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. It brings together historical, educational and technological resources to create programs which preserve our aviation heritage in building an air and space museum for all ages that embraces California aviation, Travis Air Force Base, the U. S. Air Force and the history of the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders.
It took teamwork to restore and move the C-141 ”Golden Bear.”
The expensive and complex operation was a perfect example of
what the foundation does: bringing together resources to
preserve our aviation heritage.
