From a small one-hangar beginning, the San Diego Air & Space Museum’s annex at Gillespie Field has grown to become an integral part of the Museum’s aircraft restoration and replica reproduction program. Staffed mainly by volunteers, the Facility has produced some of SDASM’s finest work.
Of local significance, a Convair F-102A Delta Dagger recently completed restoration at the Annex. This aircraft was built in San Diego at Convair’s Lindbergh Field plant in the mid-1950s. Many of the volunteers who participated in preservation efforts actually worked on the F-102 while employed by Convair/General Dynamics.
Open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Annex is located on the north side of Gillespie Field. Please call 619.258.1221 for more information. There is no charge for admission but donations are accepted.
