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.

Taking a look back, the Norton Air Force Base Museum participated in the Redlands Veterans Day Parade held on November 11, 2022. We had a great turnout and all of our vehicles were running.


The Redlands Hometown Heroes Foundation and the city of Redlands presented the annual Veterans Day Parade, which draws several thousand people each year. Following the parade, veterans, their families and the community gathered at Jennie Davis Park for a celebration honoring members of the military for their service. 

NAFB Museum is on display

Breeze Airlines now has daily flights out of the San Bernardino International Airport to San Francisco. To help draw attention to the Norton Museum, the Airport Authority asked the Museum staff to put a display in the terminal. The display is working as the museum has welcomed interested passengers to the museum.
