  • This is a place right near the Lincoln tomb so if you are visiting the tomb swing by this place. This is someone's connection that they are sharing with the public and wow it is a fantastic collection. It is free to enter but you can make a donation if you wish to. They had some cute cats running around and they just laid on the floor in front of me wanting to be pet. Some of the planes are open that you can sit in and take pictures. I will come here again that's for sure. This is on my list of places to see in Springfield if you are there... check it out. Any questions just ask!
  • Outstanding, casual approach to seeing the collection of planes. Staff very informative.
