History of AAIR and Mission Statement
For the last 14 years, AAIR has been researching and documenting military aircraft crash sites in the Western US. Frustrated with the long wait and the cost of obtaining documents from the government, AAIR started acquiring all of the military accident report and aircraft record card microfilm reels, close to 2000 in all!
AAIR's goal are to:
