Recently there was a book signing by LT Colonel Richard Lewis.He was a WWII pilot and recounts his experiences. It was very nice getting to speak to him in person and listen to the stories. It is so much more real to hear it in person. I hope they will have more events soon.

from a 1911 Curtis to a incredible beautiful P51 Mustang, fantasy of flight museum has a small but worth visiting airplane collection.

There are some fascinating aircraft in the single hangar which is currently open. Some date back to the dawn of flight, and it's possible to see their under-skin construction which is enough to convince me of the bravery of early aviators! There are several unusual and record-breaking aircraft, but for me the two top aircraft were the P51 Mustang, which... More

After seeing all of the photos and friends of mine talking about how great this museum was, I was excited that they were reopening the museum, even as a scaled down version, just so I could get some pictures of the planes. That's about all you can do, take pictures of some of the planes. They are packed into the... More

The museum is just fantastic. One day is not enough to consume it all. My next trip I intend to take the biplane ride. Kermit Weeks did a wonderful job. It is a must see if you are in Orlando. DON'T MISS IT!

I can't give you a female perspective because we didn't get to go with the guys. I can tell you the 13 year old and his dad really enjoyed it. I know they'll be going back again the next chance they have. The part of the facility I saw was very clean and neat. The receptionist was very nice.

Due to remodeling the museum is much smaller now and only open weekends while the design/construction is taking place. There are still many interesting planes, etc. The Kermit Weeks collection is going to be awesome when Fantasy of Flight Act 3 is ready.

After a week of Disney, I'd been looking forward to a bit of me time. Turned up at 2:45pm to find I had 15 mins until it closed. Just my luck!. however, the Staff could not have been more accommodating. They let my son and I have a look around the museum and then out to the apron to look... More
