As our restoration team in Florida works on the P-47 Thunderbolt restoration, we have uncovered an amazing piece of history that we need your help with! As we removed the components of the turbosupercharger (turbocharger) section in the aft fuselage, we found the name of a "Rosie the Riveter" who likely helped construct the aircraft (P-47D-40-RA s/n 45-49167) in late 1944 at the Republic Aircraft factory in Evansville, IN. We think her name is "Sue Tharp" or "Sue Thorp" with a middle initial of "V"? We'd love to find her, if she is still with us, or her family. Is there anyone from the Evansville, IN area that might know or remember Sue? Any leads, email us at ahm@collingsfoundation.org! ... See MoreSee Less

Donate to the American Heritage Museum
2023-2024 Annual Fund

Your dollars preserve our American military heritage

Your support propels our mission to preserve, protect, and present history. We receive no government funds for what we do… only the dedication and donations from supporters like you allow us to sustain our mission.

With a small staff, modest overhead, and an amazing team of passionate volunteers, we have transformed every dollar given into tremendous impact. Our forward momentum is strong but we need your help to keep it going.

Your gift will enable us to reach over 70,000 visitors in the coming year, and to provide hands-on history education for over 8,000 students.

With your help we will begin restoration on new aircraft including the P-47 Thunderbolt, Hawker Hurricane, and the rare and iconic Ju-87 Stuka, as well as others. Of particular importance is our pending restoration of a 1920s German rail car that will become a crucial part of our new, permanent exhibit on the horrors and the lessons of The Holocaust.

This is why we ask you to make the American Heritage Museum and Collings Foundation, Inc., a part of your year-end giving.
