With its historical museum and operations center headquarters  in Titusville, the Valiant Command preserves “warbirds,”  vintage World War II and post-war military planes.  Since its formation in 1977, the Valiant Air Command has reached international proportions, with more than 350 historic warbirds.  Each spring, the Valiant Air Command hosts an air show at the Space Center Executive Airport.  Then, the museum really comes to life as the historic warbirds take to the wild blue yonder.
