There are currently over 80 aircraft in the museum's collection, with 40 on display (36 at Edwards and four at the AFFT-managed Blackbird Airpark in Palmdale) and the remainder in storage or restoration. Other artifacts in the collection include aircraft propulsion systems, missiles, hardware, life support equipment, technical drawings, test reports, personal memorabilia, photographs, and wind tunnel models.
