The aircraft currently on display are on loan from the various military services, with the exception of the McDonnell DouglasF-101 Voodoo, recorded as having a civilian owner. The museum also hosts periodic open cockpit days featuring a select aircraft. Also, there is a research library, including a video tape collection. The museum relies on many men and women volunteers who assist its visitors with admissions, store purchases, tours, and aircraft restorations.
This Voodoo, serial number 53-2418, was the first production A-model and was delivered in August 1954 to Edwards AFB. Its maiden flight was on September 29, 1954, with McDonnell Aircraft test pilot Robert C. Little. Test flight results: Mach 0.9 at 35,000 feet with a maximum test speed of Mach 1.4. This aircraft, which is privately owned, has been moved to the Evergreen Maintenance Center in Marana, Arizona to undergo restoration for display at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon.
