I am a huge WWII airplane buff and this show didn't disappoint. Great roster of WWII airplanes, including the only fly-worthy B-29, and many others. There are also great static displays, plenty of vendors when you get hungry, and the nearby museum if everything outside isn't enough for you. It's a great air show and if you love fly-worthy, WWII... More

The museum is an eclectic mix of aircraft from different eras. The B25 on display was very impressive. The tour guide provided many interesting facts that are not generally known. The annual air show is something that will be on our list of things to do.

I went to the 25th Anniversary air show with my fiance. He is a former pilot and he helps to restore old planes; working for the MA Museum in the past. I didn't know what to expect - I'd never been to an air show. I was very impressed by the historic set up of the tents and people dressed... More

I was lucky enough to be staying in the area when the air show was taking place. What a collection of planes and memorabilia! The sky was alive with formations...!!

On the plus side, lots of re-enactors, vehicles, displays. Ground skirmish/French village. Seeing the old warbirds in the airshow was great. Seeing my faves like P51s, B17, and B29 roar past was a thrill. Admission $27 but for full day and there is lots to see. Listen to the tips on the maam.org site - it does get hot, no... More

This was my reason for the trip. They have one of the best WW2 air shows around. The 1940's role players and the singers like The Manhattan Dolls, Abbott and Costello and Frank sings Frank are worth the trip alone. This is my third year and I'll be back.

I knew the show would be crowded. Police directed us away from the airport to park miles and miles away. No - turned around and got closer to the airport. No signs, nothing about close parking or handicapped parking - which I could have used. Parked on the far side of the airport (at least they didn't charge for parking).... More

This is a great venue. From the French village, to the encampments, the military vehicles to the many reenactors and then the aircraft. I am an ex-fighter pilot and thus was really there for the fighters but I was much impressed with the variety of US and German uniforms and side arms,etc. Go early and do anything possible (read pay...

The museum is nice and well maintained. The tour is very thorough and the staff knowledgeable. I would budget 2 to 3 hours on a regular visit. Over the WW2 weekend, on Dday anniversary, annually, make a long day of it. Reenactors, restored equipment as far as the eye can see. The aircraft are simply amazing, among the rarest flying...

Came down for their annual WW2 weekend for the first time and had a terrific time. VERY well organized and tons of stuff to see. Being a old plane nut I was in 7th heaven with all the vintage aircraft on display and flying. 1st class operation.. Would definitely come back again in the future....
