Archives Research Request

             

The Smithsonian is closed due to a federal government shutdown. The National Air and Space Museum Archives will be closed and unable to respond to emails or phone calls until further notice.

Many of your questions may be answered by visiting our FAQ.

The Archives Division reference desk answers requests in the order in which they are received. Please allow 2-3 weeks for a reply. Replies are sent via postal mail.

Please limit aircraft requests to three models or serial numbers. For more in-depth topics, we may ask that you plan a visit to the Archives.
