Commemorative Air Force 12 Planes of Christmas 2023

We’ve waited all year for this, and it’s finally time to launch 12 Planes of Christmas, the Commemorative Air Force’s (CAF) annual online giving event. Designed to support the aircraft of the CAF, this event highlights the efforts of the organization and its volunteer members who restore and preserve its fleet of over 175 historic aircraft. Every year, 12 aircraft of the fleet are selected to be featured during the “12 Planes of Christmas” campaign, each with different historical significance and in various stages of restoration; some need support to become airworthy again. Each aircraft has a unique story to share and reason to support its preservation and operational efforts.

We hope you enjoy learning more about the aircraft and some of the important programs like the Restoration Grant Fund. Please support the Commemorative Air Force and your favorite warbird today by visiting www.12planesofChristmas.org!
