  • Really surprised how nice and entertaining this museum was. So many planes, plus the open cockpits and the flight simulator. The huge, C130 was great. Plus a Harrier, F14, and some of the Machine 1 Sonic planes that broke the sound barrier. But the biggest surprise was the actual 737 that Sully landed - the miracle on the Hudson. Amazing to see it in person and stand within inches of the actual plane. On top of it all, the staff were obviously aviation fanatics. So much passion and care for the visitor experience. Highly recommend this museum!
  • It’s a decent place to visit, needs more attractions though. I am aware it may be difficult to do so but will make this place even better. It is cool that there is US Airways flight 1549 on display. I recommend visiting just make sure you wear clothes that fit the temperature as there is no air conditioner in the hangar.
