[Note: This is a listing of vehicles in the Marine Corps Aviation Museum at Quantico; it is based on a book manuscript compiled during the 1980’s. It is planned to update this during 2010 to reflect the new National Museum of the Marine Corps but in the meantime if you are planning to visit Quantico you should contact the museum for the latest information first.]

The purpose of the Marine Corps Aviation Museum is to illustrate the history of Marine Corps Aviation through the use of aircraft, support equipment, aviation ordnance, uniforms and documents. It is in the process of changing to become the Marine Corps Air-Ground Museum and will portray the USMC’s part in the pioneering of the combined-arms team with its exhibits of aircraft, tanks and amphibious vehicles.
