The Museum of Flight's Restoration Center & Reserve Collection at Paine Field is a 23,000-square-foot site where thousands of volunteer hours are devoted to renovating and restoring aircraft to exhibition quality. Every project at the Restoration Center & Reserve Collection is a labor of love, sometimes requiring several years to complete even with about 50 volunteers working on between 3-5 projects at any given time, all year round.
Through Restoration Tours, visitors are welcome to walk around the aircraft and talk to the volunteers at the Restoration Center & Reserve Collection, but should keep in mind that it is a working hanger so monitoring safety is important.
