Naval Air Wildwood is featured in an article by Kevin McKinney in AircraftOwner Online Magazine, “Old Meets News at a Southern New Jersey Aviation Museum.”
The Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum in Rio Grande, NJ, boasts an impressive collection of some 19 classic flying machines in its historic 1943 hangar. There’s the Boeing-Stearman PT-17 Kaydet, one of the most widely used basic trainers during World War II.
Also, housed in the museum’s 92,000 square-foot, all-wooden hangar is the “Huey” helicopter, which first appeared during the Vietnam War. Perhaps, the museum’s most prized possession is the TBM-3E Avenger, a World War II torpedo bomber — one of just seven aircraft in the country to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
