VAC Aircraft Collections

VAC Flying Collection

A key part of VAC's mission is preserving warbirds in their native element - the sky. Four of our aircraft routinely fly and are maintained by our dedicated team of volunteers. These aircraft fly at least once a month (subject to weather and maintenance) and can be seen at airshows across the southeast. Nothing beats the sound, sights and smells of seeing these glorious aircraft come to life and take to the sky. Come experience it for yourself!

C-47 Tico Belle

A storied veteran of D-Day, Market Garden, The Battle of the Bulge, Operation Varsity and the Berlin Airlift, our C-47 "Tico Belle" is the flagship and centerpiece of the flying collection at VAC.


TBM Avenger

Our TBM is emerging from a 15 year restoration process to take its place back where it belongs. Currently in its FAA supervised flight test phase this aircraft will shortly become a regular on the airshow circuit. Her color scheme comemorates the famous Flight 19


A-4 Skyhawk

A flying memorial to the Vietnam War, our A-4 Skyhawk flies twice a month. This aircraft formed the backbone of Naval Aviation in the early 1960's. Come see her in action and imagine what it was like so operate her from a carrier flight deck in the South China Sea.


F-86 Sabre

The classic 1950's fighter, the F-86 Sabre changed the course of the air war in Korea by turning the tide against the MiG 15. Its clean design, beautiful handling and the deadly punch packed by six .50cal Browning machine guns mark the F-86 as the West's first modern jet fighter.


VAC Static Collection

Valiant Air Command has a dedicated and experienced team of volunteers who specialize in static restoration. With a collection of over 40 aircraft, there is always something to be done. We are accredited as a US Navy, US Air Force and US Army approved museum and have built a reputation for some of the highest quality restorations in the business.
