Located at the CAF National Airbase in Dallas, Texas, the outdoor space between the CAF’s National Headquarters and the Henry B. Tippie National Aviation Education Center (NAEC) is known as the Victory Plaza. We invite you to pay tribute to others -loved ones, family members, friends, and mentors who you want to honor for their service or inspiration – or purchase a brick in your own name and be recognized for your support of the transformational experiences provided by the CAF and the NAEC. Each brick is 8” x 4” and is available for a donation of $250 per brick. The amount of your donation is tax-deductible to the extent provided by law and you will receive a tax acknowledgment for your records.

The commemorative bricks lining the Victory Plaza welcome all visitors to the CAF and the NAEC. Since 1957, the CAF has used its collection of aircraft to tell the stories of World War II and bring history to life. Today, the CAF owns and operates the largest collection of vintage military warbirds in the world. These aircraft play a central role in the CAF’s educational outreach programs that reach an estimated 20 million Americans each year, providing unique, compelling hands-on access to history through aviation events, programs, and airshows.

Made of high-quality Belden® bricks personalized with laser engraved lettering, the Victory Plaza bricks are a unique way to leave a lasting impact. To learn more contact the Development Office at development@cafhq.org or (877) 767-7175, ext. 131
