Military history is also on display in the museum. The Curtis P-40E housed in the museum was part of the battles between American and Japanese forces in the Aleutian Islands. Unfortunately, the plane is mostly wreckage, lacking wings, dash, and various other parts. This aircraft was part of the battle that tipped off the Aleutian campaign on June 4, 1942. Now it sits as a reminder of Alaska's contributions to the war. The museum is currently attempting to restore the P-40.
Also part of the wide range of planes on display is PBY-0A/10A. The Queen of Dago Lake was recovered by the founders of the museum and helped earn the museum's prestige. There's even a Boeing 737 jet on display. Another major exhibit in the museum is its Hall of Fame for Alaskan pilots, the most recent inductees being Bill English, F. Atlee Dodge and Jack Peck in 2014.
