CAF Announces This Year’s Featured 12 Planes of Christmas Aircraft
Dallas, TX (August 25, 2022) - The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) will again hold their “12 Planes of Christmas,” an online giving campaign in the Winter. The campaign provides an opportunity to aid in the restoration and maintenance of the aircraft as well as learn more about the CAF’s fleet of historic aircraft. All the CAF aircraft are restored, maintained, flown, and exhibited by a dedicated volunteer force, which operate out of 60 different locations across the country. The organization depends on donations to keep them flying.
This year, the CAF will feature 12 planes and our Phoenix project, each with different historical significance and in various stages of restoration; some needing support to become airworthy again.
The campaign launches on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29, and will run throughout December 31, 2022.

PT-17 – Dallas Fort Worth Wing
