Wings of History Museum
Wings of History is an aviation museum in San Martin, California. It has two large hangars filled with aircraft and instrument parts. Hangar 1 consists mainly of antique aircraft parts, like engines, and a full-size, complete albeit non-flying replica of the Wright Brothers' original Wright Flyer. This hangar also has many models and other highly detailed aircraft engines. Hangar 2 consists mainly of complete aircraft, and a car-helicopter that was donated. Near the exit there is a flight simulator and collection of radar and flight instruments. Other aircraft are outside the hangars, including a 1938 American Eagle A-101, 1934 Aeronca C-3, 1934 Pietenpol Air Camper, 1940 Stinson Model 10 and various experimental aircraft. The museum also has a restoration shop, library, and propeller shop.
San Martin is in Santa Clara County near Gilroy, about 30 miles south of San Jose.
