Please make a donation to help support The World Cruiser Conservation project. The World Cruisers were the first planes to circumnavigate the world by air in 1924. The New Orleans was one of two World Cruisers, built by Douglas Aircraft in Santa Monica, to survive the around the world flight and the only Cruiser to remain in its original condition. Your donation will help the conservation of this historic plane. Your donation is greatly appreciated.  

Herbert L. Trautman was an inventor and aviation enthusiast who was employed by the Douglas Aircraft Company along with some of his family members.  He designed and built a one-of-a-kind aircraft called the RoadAir in 1959 right here in Southern California.  It has been on display at another Museum for a number of years and that Museum no longer wishes to display the aircraft.  The extended family has agreed to a long-term loan to the Museum of Flying.  We need to raise the funds to cover the transport of the aircraft by trailer from the East coast.  If you would like to support this cause, please make a contribution with the button below. Thank you for your consideration.

Originally established in 1974 as the Douglas Museum and Library, the Museum first opened in 1979 at 3200 Airport Avenue.  The Museum was founded by Donald Douglas Jr, the second President of the Douglas Aircraft Company. Construction began on the new Museum in early 2010 and the Museum celebrated its grand opening to the public in the new building on February 25, 2012.  The Museum collection consists of the many original artifacts related to the Douglas Aircraft Company, a variety of exhibits, aviation art, and features an array of aircraft from a Wright Flyer replica...
