Edward T. Maloney is an aviation historian and museum curator based in Southern California.

He is responsible for building much of the collection of historic airframes displayed at the Planes of Fame Museum at Chino Airport, Chino, California.cite book |last= |first= |title= B-17s: Where to find them |url= http://www.aerovintage.com/b17loc.htm |accessdate= 2007-01-15|date= |publisher= Aero Vintage Books |isbn= |quote= ]

Maloney had the foresight to recognize that today's scrap is tomorrow's history, and began collecting odd airframes for a future museum. His first item was reportedly the Ohka Kamikaze rocket in the current collection, acquired in 1946.

Maloney opened his first aviation museum at Claremont, California in the late 1950s, and then moved to LA/Ontario International Airport, Ontario, California in the 1960s. His collection included several military aircraft including a rare P-26 Peashooter, a P-51A, a Hanriot HD.1, a Heinkel He 162, the Northrop N9M flying wing testbed, the nose section of a B-36 Peacemaker bomber, and the last B-17 Flying Fortress bomber, "Picadilly Lilly II" (44-83684), in United States Air Force operation, a former drone-director. This B-17 starred in the "Twelve O' Clock High" television series, 1964-1966. Inter-active displays included a vintage World War II gunnery training machine.

When Maloney was forced to relocate from the Ontario Airport hangar in 1969, his collection moved to its present location at Chino Airport, California. Maloney remains active in the preservation of aviation history.
