Interesting collection. Boeing Vertol and a couple of other a/c's out front. Weather beaten. Should be taken inside and refurbished. Happen to be an airshow that day so plenty of activities going on. Ground and air. good place to visit when you have the time to walk around and get up close to the a/c inside.

We attended the Father's Day exhibit and were thrilled! The former pilot of the large chopper was on hand to talk about the history of that helicopter. Lots of history and technology to view. That day, there were helicopter rides and drone exhibitions.

Most of the inventory is in... More

If you're a helicopter aficionado, this is a great way to spend a few hours- located right next to the airport, it's best to visit during one of their father's day events if you can.
