Actually two museums combined into one, the Fred E. Weisbrod Museum - International B-24 Museum offers information and relics from historical airplanes.
FRED E. WEISBROD AIRCRAFT MUSEUM This museum unique to the State of Colorado is a tribute to American military airmanship and is the largest collection of vintage aircraft on the Eastern Range. On June 30 1972 the first aircraft a Douglas A-26 Invader arrived on site followed soon thereafter by a Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star.
The other aircraft currently on display are on loan from the various military services with the exception of the McDonnell Douglas F-101 recorded as having a civilian owner. Located six miles east of the city on highway 50 at the Pueblo Memorial Airport the aircraft display and the International B-24 memorial Museum occupy space on what was the Pueblo Army Air Base during WWII. The museum is free and open to the public seven days a week.
Members of the Pueblo Historical Aircraft Society a volunteer group of ex-military and civilian personnel manage and operate the aircraft display as well as performing the repair and restoration of the aircraft.
INTERNATIONAL B-24 MEMORIAL MUSEUM In 1986 the Pueblo Historical Aircraft Society was requested to create a number of 8 foot by 10 foot display panels depicting the manufacturing and military history of the B-24 Liberator bomber of World War II fame. These panels were transported to Ft. Worth Texas where they formed a major display at the 50th reunion of the first flight of the B-24. After the reunion the panels were returned to Pueblo for permanent display as a memorial to the B-24 training base of WWII which was in operation from 1941 to 1946. This display formed the basis for the International B-24 Memorial Museum which was formally dedicated on July 15 1989 by Colonel Robert Vickers. USAFR of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The B-24 Museum is of special importance to the citizens of Pueblo and Pueblo County as it is a reminder of Pueblo's military heritage and its place in military history. The Museum is also a reminder that thousands of aircrew members trained here and then went on to military assignments in all the various theaters of operation. The main purpose of the museum is to honor all those involved in the design production and military deployment of the B-24 Liberator. It is unique in that it is the only known museum dedicated to a specific airplane.
Although the museum lacks an actual B-24 to display the indoor collection of B-24 technical and design data military uniforms airborne radio equipment photographs flight log books and other military aviation memorabilia accurately portrays the B-24.
