The Swift Museum is open Monday – Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM, but has currently has limited staffing so visitors arriving from away locations are encourage to contact the Museum to ensure tour guide availability.
The Swift Museum is located at the McMinn County airport in Athens, Tennessee. It has multiple Swift aircraft on display, including the proto type #1, production examples 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 proud to present Swift’s from the start in 1946 to today. Although production stopped in 1951, Swift’s have continued to be modified and current editions have the speed and looks to be the envy of General aviation. From SN#1 to the military model, the T-35 Buckaroo, there is not a finer collection of Swift’s on display in the world. A Swift is hanging in the Smithsonian for national viewing, but at the Swift Museum you can stand next to these historic aircraft and see into the cockpit.
