The Wings of History Aerial Photographic Collection contains photographic negatives and prints of aerial images of San Francisco,
Santa Clara Valley and Monterey Bay communities. Towns, prominent buildings and landmarks in Santa Clara Valley and San Francisco
are represented. Of these, some of the structures of note include the Lick Observatory, Agnew State Mental Hospital – East

The Wings of History Museum of San Martin, California began as the Northern California Antique Aircraft Association in 1962.
A local flight club, the NCAAA organized a local fly-in which has in 30 years become the Watsonville Fly-in and Air Show.
Proceeds from the fly-in were used to purchase the land and build facilities for what is now the Wings of History Musuem.
