Experience Maritime Patrol Aviation in Maine!
Preserving the 75 Year History of Hunting Submarines
Poised just hundreds of feet from the icy North Atlantic, with a legacy of over 75 years of relentless vigilance, Naval Air Station Brunswick, Maine, carved a unique place in US and Naval history and played a critical role in maritime patrol aviation world-wide. With important contributions during World War II, Vietnam and the Cold War, and with squadron deployments to Korea, the Far East, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, tens of thousands of airmen and women trained and flew from Brunswick, often in harm’s way and usually out of the limelight.
At this moment in time and history, as Cold War memories fade and photographs, films and verbal narratives lose their relevance or disappear altogether, it is critically important that we collect, consolidate and conserve the thousands of facts, artifacts, stories and historical incidents that tell the complete story of U.S. maritime patrol aviation.
