Lone Star Flight Museum
The Lone Star Flight Museum in Houston displays more than 40 historically significant aircraft and many hundreds of artifacts related to the history of flight. The museum's collection is rare because most of the aircraft are flyable. Located next to Ellington Airport, the museum includes its own airstrip. Formerly located in Galveston, the museum moved to Houston and re-opened in September 2017. The Texas Aviation Hall of Fame, located within the museum, honors the contributions of residents or natives of Texas to aviation and spaceflight. Inductees include Howard Hughes, Alan Bean, Senator Lloyd Bentsen, and President George H. W. Bush.
Many aircraft in the collection date from the 1930s or 1940s.
