A Place of Honor

One of The Museum of Flight’s largest and most iconic aircraft, the Boeing B-52G Stratofortress 59-2584 Midnight Express, has been lost in plain sight for the past 28 years. This veteran warbird has been restored to its former glory and will have a new home in a place of honor on the Museum’s campus at Boeing Field.

The restored Midnight Express will reside on the west side of the Museum’s Aviation Pavilion in a serene park-like setting where visitors can reflect upon the B-52 and the nearly 8,000 other U.S. military aircraft lost during Vietnam.

The plane will be joined by a statue depicting a returning aviator and five military branch flags to honor the veterans who served in all military branches between 1955 and 1975.
