About Us

Thank you for visiting the Hangar at 743, home of The Warbird Factory, and the Prescott Foundation. Our mission is to preserve, inform, educate, and honor the past by providing a living history of World War II aircraft and artifacts to our visitors.

The Hangar at 743 and Warbird Factory bring aviation enthusiasts an epic first-hand experience to learn and explore history. The “wow factor” for all ages is getting close to World War II aircraft. Visitors also enjoy hearing the engines roar and see planes fly overheard during our special events and airshows. 

We invite you to join us for a visit, at an event, or as a sponsor as we honor heroes and veterans with artifacts and memorabilia reflecting those who dedicated their lives to serve our country and protect our freedom.

The Prescott Foundation hosts fundraising events during the year to keep WWII aircraft flying and support restoring of vintage aircraft like our B-25, “Old Glory”. If you would like to stay updated on our news and events, please like us on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

For those who would like to be updated by email, please email us at info@hangar743.com with “Newsletter Request” in the subject line. If you are interested in booking an event, please visit  http://www.hangar743.com/the-venue/

Fascination with aviation began in the 18th century with the hot air balloon. It continued into the 19th century with the construction of the first powered airplane by the Wright brothers. Today, The Hangar at 743 and the Warbird Factory in Latham, NY provide all ages the opportunity to explore vintage aircraft from World War II, as we honor history and heroes.
