The Swift Museum is located at the McMinn County airport (KMMI) in Athens, Tennessee approximately 60 miles southwest of Knoxville, 60 miles northeast of Chattanooga and 200 miles southeast of Nashville. We have multiple Swift aircraft on display, including the first proto type #1, stock production and modified Swifts from 1946 to 1951, as well as two T-35 Buckaroo USAF trainers. These military versions of the Swift were tested by the USAF in the early 1950’s. One of the T-35’s is an armed version used by and donated to the Museum from the Saudi Arabian Air Force. The museum is open for individual and group tours.
