Historic Flight at Kilo-6 offers a collection of the most important aircraft produced between 1927 and 1957-all restored and airborne again.
Sited at the southwest corner of Paine Field, Kilo-6 offers a journey into the energy, hard work, and passion that fueled aviation from 1927 through 1957. Like the aircraft in our collection, the hangars at Kilo-6 are designed to reflect beauty, durability, and honestly expressed materials.
Our mission goes beyond serving as trustees of an era. We want you to experience the roar of our F8F "Wampus Cat" taking off. Watch engineers at work restoring the aircraft to flying condition. Share the rush of viewing international treasures from all angles. Whether you're an experienced aviator, a student of history, or a newcomer to our world, we want to spark and fuel your passion-both for aviation and for epiphanies born from hard labor. Our heroes did not leap from the bathtub shrieking, "Eureka!" They scrawled a sketch on a piece of paper. Got interested in an impossible challenge. And then they dove into the work. The reward? Innovation that astonished both them and us, and that continues to change our world.
Hours: 10 am - 5 pm, Tuesday-Sunday. Other times by prior arrangement.
