Uncovering the Past, Inspiring the Future: The Wendover Airfield and Mighty Penguin preserve American history for generations to come
The Historic Wendover Airfield, located just over the Nevada border in Tooele County, is a true piece of history that evokes memories of the brave men and women who contributed to the World War II effort. The airfield is one of the most complete sites of its kind in the United States. However, restoring and revitalizing such an important site can be a daunting challenge.
Enter Mighty Penguin, a team dedicated to bringing new life to historic locations like Wendover Airfield. For years, we've worked tirelessly with the airfield to fund restoration efforts that preserve its legacy and honor its heroes. Among our many accomplishments is the restoration of the Enola Gay aircraft crew training hangar - a true gem of the airbase.
Through close collaboration with private donors, city and county officials, and the state legislature, we've raised millions of dollars for various restoration projects on site. We're proud to be a part of the effort to ensure that the Historic Wendover Airfield remains a vibrant and inspiring symbol of American history.
