We were staying at Nolin Lake and enjoying all middle KY has to offer and made this part of our trip to Bowling Green with our young children before going to Splash Town, the boy loves xbox war games and enjoyed the planes, our little girl not so much. Worth the visit!

A true joy, just 5 minutes off the highway. No admission charge ever and now there are about to be 5 aircraft on exhibit. Very well manicured grounds, family and elderly friendly.

The sun was setting on a static exhibit of restored American fighter jets, each with a story to tell. Visitors can get up close and... More

What treasure of historic aircraft. Located near an awesome park. I believe another plane is on its way to be displayed here.

A nice little park with a handle full of planes. Worth the drive off the main drag if you have time. Skip if your tight on time cause its only takes 15 20 minutes to view.

This treasure of aeronautical viewing is easy to get to, FREE, & a great lesson for adults & especially children. With 4 planes here, with a great historical presentation, it's a great experience to take in the sights. It's a couple of hours, more or less, to see, and not a difficult or timely tourist attraction. A local decorated pilot... More

This is a historic avaition park with individual connections to the Bowling Green area! We met General Cherry and heard his story, saw his F4 Phantom , as well as a F111 Aardvark, a nd several other jet fighters the park has restored to their original glory! It's a must see for history buffs!

Gorgeous park, spotless and spacious. 4 military aircraft now on display. Nobody around but you most of the time...places to sit...a radio station that tells about the planes. A rare gem.

Great piece of history. The heroes that surround us in everyday life we don't even know that they are there! Beautiful aircraft and the radio station that broadcasts the story really pulled it all together; wonderful, wonderful place to visit! And all free!!
