1941 Historical Aircraft Group Museum

3489 Big Tree Lane
Geneseo, NY 14454


The 1941 Aircraft Group was established in 1994 by an initial group of 250 aviation enthusiasts. The primary goal of the Group was to continue with the traditional air show based held on the turf strip at the Geneseo airport and to highlight the aircraft of the past with a focus on World War II aviation.

The first Warbird Gathering air show was held in September 1994. Each year the show continued to grow in aircraft participation and spectators. This year's Geneseo Air Show will be held in July at the Geneseo airport.

In an effort to make the Group more visible, the first USO show was held at the Geneseo Armory in 1994. The show has become a favorite event for members and guests. The Annual Memories USO Show is now held at the 1941 Aircraft Group Hangar at the Geneseo Airport and is enjoyed by all who attend.

In the Spring of 2001, the Group was granted a Provisional Museum Charter by the New York State Board of Regents. The group's Board of Trustees was increased to five members and our name was officially changed to the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group Museum, Inc. At the same time, the name Hangar Tales was adopted for the Group's newsletter.
