Did not visit the museum, but for the airport it is a very small one but well maintained. Only small flights land here and one can see the aircrafts from the highway as well. Not a very busy airport, but the experience to be here is good.

An amazing collection of aircraft for a small museum. It is a great pity that they sold the working/flying B-17 to cover costs. The grounds are a must see if you have any interest in military aircraft. It is very easy to locate and get to. Plenty of parking for the Tardis. The Doctor

A very small airport with almost entirely commuter service to Philadlphia, Detroit, and Chicago, and twice a week larger aircraft to Sanford and St. Petersburg, Florida. With limited flights and the challenges from smaller planes, the people at the Elmira Corning Airport have gone well beyond to provide the best possible service. A very friendly place with an exceptional staff.... More

We try to combine this with Harris Hill and the Glider Museum. Between the two you cover just about every aspect of flying. It's a good time for the whole family

A gem that is hidden away. Occasional air shows but the museum has great displays and is mall enough to really explore the history there. Take the kids.

At the moment, closed while moving, but this is generally a pretty good little airplane museum. They mostly have a mix of 50s, 60s and 70s military aircraft, a lot is US Navy, including a F-14 Tomcat (top-gun), as well as a Mig-21 (Vietnam era Russian). A couple of unusual ones are replicas, a late WWII German Jet Fighter (Heinkel... More

The museum is currently being moved to a new space. They have a temporary set up in a building with ver very little in it. (2 aircraft). The other 20 planes are in some storage area. The real "burn" is that they still charge you admission! A donation system would have been better. After pauimg the $, we asked where... More

My family stopped here on the way to Corning Glass. You can walk thru the display yourself, but I would call first and find out when the tours are as you will learn a lot more and be able to see the restoration area. And there is a plane to climb on and sit in for those who just have... More
