The Mission of the Commemorative Air Force is to Promote and Preserve in Flying Condition, the History and Esprit de Corps of World War Aviation.
All members are volunteers who have a great love for maintaining and flying these airplanes for years to come. You do not have to be an airplane mechanic or hold a pilot certificate to become involved with the CAF. The CAF is the eighth largest Air Force in the World. There are currently over 140 flying aircraft, and over 9,000 men and women members of the CAF - in 30 nations, including units in France, England, Australia, Switzerland, and New Zealand.
We at the Golden Gate Wing, carry on that tradition, and maintain three warbirds. The SNJ, a 5000 pound Advanced Trainer, with a 600 HP Pratt & Whitney Radial engine, the T-33 jet trainer which first debuted in Italy in the last days of WWII, and the Chinese built Russian Mig 17.
