Due to COVID-19 precautionary measures being taken, all Whiteman Air Force Base public affairs tours, flyovers and community engagement events are cancelled until further notice and on a case-by-case basis. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Thank you for understanding. For more information regarding COVID-19, please visit https://www.af.mil/News/Coronavirus-Disease-2019/.
Spirit Tours are geared toward families and members of the general public who are interested in learning more about the history, missions and assets of Whiteman Air Force Base.
Tours are available during our tour season, March-October.
Due to manning shortfalls, inspections and mission requirements, these tours maybe cancelled or rescheduled with little or no notice. Tour requests will have to be handled on a case by case basis. We apologize for any requests that cannot be met due to the current situation.
A maximum of 40 guests (minimum 30) are allowed on a Spirit Tour. In the past, the 509th BW Public Affairs Office hosted individual group tours; however interested parties for the 2018 year will need to enroll in a Spirit Tour on a space-available, first-come-first-served basis. Any group or individual requesting a Spirit Tour must submit a Spirit Tour Request Form to the 509th BW Public Affairs Office.
