Located at the northeastern corner of Gillespie Field, visitors can view various aircraft, including many examples of military jets, private sport aircraft and small racing planes. New additions at Gillespie are the S-3 Viking, the P2 Neptune, and Baron Hilton’s Staggerwing.

The restoration shop at Gillespie Field, like the one in the basement of the main Museum building, is staffed by highly skilled volunteers. In addition to repairing various historic aircraft, they are able to build authentic reproductions. Current projects for the year include the Boeing FB5 and Aeronca L-3.

From a small one-hangar beginning, the San Diego Air & Space Museum’s annex at Gillespie Field has grown to become an integral part of the Museum’s aircraft program. Staffed mainly by volunteers, the Facility has produced some of SDASM’s finest work.
