4/10/19 - Project Update 

The Estimated Cost to Completion remains $3.1M. To date we are about 1/3 the way through the funding with donations and pledges received. The committee has made the decision to break the project into two phases:

  • Phase 1:  Landscaping, compass rose fabrication and installation, bronze plaques (and cast Globe & Anchor seal for center of compass rose) and Stone Benches (fabrication & installation), full engineering drawings of support structure and fabricated glass wings.

  • Phase 2: Installation of support structure, fabricate, delivery and installation of glass

Breaking the project into 2 phases allows us to make some tangible progress and we believe having phase 1 completed will add additional incentive move to completion.

Next year is the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII in the Pacific. We want to have this monument established to honor all who served at MCAS Santa Barbara, and all our WWII veterans.
More information will be published as we make progress on Phase 1.

Wings of Honor Santa Barbara

Wings of Honor is a one-of-a-kind tribute that will honor all Military Veterans and commemorate the historical role Santa Barbara, the Airport and Marine Corps Air Station, played in helping to win WWII in the Pacific. The Air Station also contributed in a major way to the growth of Goleta and the expansion of Santa Barbara Airport and the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB).

Standing more than 20 feet tall, the Wings of Honor will be the largest, most breathtaking cantilevered glass sculpture in the world! Built of self-cleaning, non-glare glass and designed to withstand earthquakes, hurricanes and meet other stringent California building codes, the monument will include an online local history program that will educate future generations for decades to come. Learn how you can help Wings of Honor take flight.
