The Highland Lakes
Squadron wing of the Commemorative Air Force museum in Burnet Texas
welcomes you to visit our collection of authentic WWII artifacts as well
as our “working” aircraft hangar where we bring WWII aircraft back to
life. Specific exhibits include a turret from a B-24 bomber, a cutaway
radial engine of the type used in the AT-6/SNJ, a WW-II machine for
making dog tags, a WW-II instrument flying trainer (Link Trainer), and
an air-to-air missile. Guns from United States, Germany and Japan,
knives and bayonets, various home front items, newspapers, uniforms,
helmets, aircraft and ship models are on display. Our museum emphasizes
the contributions of the common soldier, seaman, and airman. All
artifacts in our museum have been donated, principally by local
residents or people having contact with local residents.
Flying aircraft in our hangar include our
1944-model C-47 "Bluebonnet Belle", 1944-model SNJ T6 Texan, 1939-model
PT-19, and 1946 L-17 Navion. You are welcome to take a guided tour of
each of these aircraft.
We are an all-volunteer non-profit unit of the Commemorative Air Force and we do ask for a small admission into the museum.
