The Historic Aircraft Restoration Museum, located at Creve Coeur Airport near St. Louis, is a museum dedicated to restoring and preserving historical aircraft. The airplanes in the collection are all fabric-covered, and most are biplanes from the inter-war years. The museum's volunteers maintain most of these aircraft in full working order. The oldest airplane on display is a Standard J-1 that was built in 1917 and was used in the movie The Rocketeer and The Great Waldo Pepper. Several of the preserved aircraft are the only surviving airworthy examples of their type.
