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. We offer our guests the extraordinary ability to interact with vintage aircraft through tours and our event venue. 

The Prescott Foundation is dedicated to the preservation of vintage aircraft, and hosts fundraising events during the year to keep our aircraft flying and support restoration projects. If you would like to stay updated on our news and events, like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram.

We invite you to join us for a visit, at an event, or as a sponsor as we act as stewards of the past in preserving these aircraft and their respective histories, keeping their stories alive for generations to come.

Night on the Tarmac Gala 2023

Our third annual Night on the Tarmac Gala will be held on September 30th at the Hangar at 743! V.I.P. Hour will begin at 6 P.M., and general admission begins at 7 P.M. Our event will feature an open bar, catered dinner, a DJ, a silent auction, and casino games, with all the glitz and glamour of the roaring 20’s. The proceeds from this event are distributed to a number of causes that ultimately connect with our mission to preserve the very last of our country’s WWII aircraft and support our local veterans. The Prescott Foundation is also closely partnered with Toys for Tots, America’s VetDogs, the American Cancer Society, the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, and Make-a-Wish. Please consider joining us for the gala, dress to impress with fringes and feathers as we turn the 2020’s into the roaring 20’s!
