  • We love planes and this was the Perfect Place to see...Sorry we missed the Air Show...Numerous planes, a Working airplane maintenance and restoration area; See Real People do Real work to make these babies Fly again. Almost every era of Flying is represented and a Vast number of models of Airplanes were displayed, too. Be a contributor to the restoration of the B-24 and take pride in helping keep history alive. A great little gift shop for plane lovers, also. Go to the library and read about your favorite planes. TALK to the people you meet there; they Know airplanes.
  • Some amazing and rare planes here for the aviation enthusiast. A good chunk are kept in flying condition, however some of the planes looked more like scrap than museum-pieces. The staff were knowledgeable, which is good because the signage was sometimes missing. If there's a particular plane you'd like to see, definitely check the website to make sure it's not flying somewhere. What this museum does great is have flying midcentury fighters and a diverse collection of aircraft. What it does decently is allow visitors do be up close and personal with the aircraft. What it could do better is be a little more fulfilling as a museum as opposed to a stranger's hangar.
