EAA WARBIRDS OF AMERICA HALL OF FAME
    (established 1995)

    EAA Warbirds of America Hall of Fame 2016

    Doug Champlin

    Nelson Ezell

    Doug Champlin's passion for preserving military aircraft extends to all eras, for World War I to the Vietnam War period. His Champlin Air Museum in Mesa, Arizona, became a magnet for warbird enthusiasts from around the world. The facility also became the home base for the American Fighter Aces Association and the Flying Tigers Association.

    After Champlin retired, the entire collection was moved in 2002 to the Museum of Flight in Seattle, where it is displayed in the museum's Personal Courage Wing. There, the airplanes and stories of the people who flew them can be preserved for posterity. Champlin passed away in May 2013, leaving behind a unique legacy in aviation.
