National Warplane Museum Returning to New York

May 24, 2013 No Comments by

The National Warplane Museum is coming back home to Geneseo, N.Y. The Geneseo-based 1941 Historical Aircraft Group announced at a Thursday morning news conference that it had reacquired the name of the National Warplane Museum, which will make its headquarters at 3489 Big Tree Lane in Geneseo.

“Today is a very special day for us. It is a great milestone for the museum and a fitting way to kick off Memorial Day weekend,” said Austin Wadsworth, president of 1941 HAG, who will retain his title for the National Warplane Museum.

The name will better help the local museum market itself, Wadsworth said.
