Ken Nelson Joins the NAFBM Team
The Norton Air Force Base Museum has some exciting news to share! AC Ken Nelson has stepped up as our new docent. Ken served with the 15th from 1976 to 1980, and he is eager to share his knowledge and experience with the public.
We are also thrilled to announce that we will be acquiring a flight simulator, and Ken will be our flight simulator instructor. This will give visitors a unique opportunity to experience flight simulations that are as close to the real thing.
We are grateful to Ken for volunteering his time and expertise, and we look forward to offering this new experience to our visitors soon.
Norton Air Force Base
Norton Air Force Base (1942–1994) was a United States Air Force facility located in San Bernardino, California, in San Bernardino County.
For the majority of its operational lifetime, Norton was a logistics depot and heavy-lift transport facility for a variety of military aircraft, equipment, and supplies as part of Air Materiel/Air Force Logistics Command (1946–1966), then as part of Military Airlift/Air Mobility Command (1966–1994).
New Norton AFB Cup
The Norton Air Force Base Museum has recently added a new coffee cup to its collection. The cup features Aircraft 177, also known as the Hanoi Taxi. If you're interested in purchasing one, they are available for $12 each, and shipping costs $5. To place an order, please call the museum at (909) 382-7307.
Norton AFB Museum added the C141 banner of ACFT 177 to the museum parking lot. This banner joins the B2 Stealth Bomber banner.
