VISIT WARBIRD PARK IN MYRTLE BEACH SC!

Warbird Park in Myrtle Beach South Carolina is home to several old fighter aircraft and is Dedicated to The Men And Women Of The United States Air Force.

Located off Highway 17 Business, in the Market Common section of Myrtle Beach, at the southern end of Ocean Boulevard, just inside the old “Myrtle Beach Air Force Base”.

During it’s long tenure in defense of our country, the mission of Myrtle Beach Air Force Base changed as the threats to our national security changed. Myrtle Beach Air Force Base was home to the 354th Tactical Fighter Wing. Myrtle Beach AFB was deactivated in March 1993 and the land was subsequently turned over to the City of Myrtle Beach.

Entrance into Warbird Park is Free of charge. Shaded picnic tables are available.

The City of Myrtle Beach has relocated a 9/11 Memorial to Warbird Park.  The Memorial is a beam from the North Tower of The World Trade Center.  

Myrtle Beach is making plans to add a World War II memorial to Warbird Park on Farrow Parkway.  Construction is expected to begin this winter.

In December 1941, just days before the Pearl Harbor attack, the Town Council agreed to turn its new airport over to the U.S. War Department to serve as the Myrtle Beach Aerial Gunnery and Bombing Range. The official vote occurred December 16, 1941, when the town sold the airport to the federal government for $3,500.

The Myrtle Beach Army Air Field was deactivated after the war, and the airport was returned to the City of Myrtle Beach in 1947. As the Cold War heated up in the mid-1950s, the city again gave the airport to the federal government.

It ultimately became the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, which operated until 1993.
