This was a nice break from the casinos. Learned a lot about the Army Air Base Wendover. They have a small and quaint museum/gift shop. At this time they have NO aircraft, except an gutted out plane that was used to film "Con Air". They are working on trying to get aircraft, and renovate the hangers and other buildings. It... More

Yeah, a visit to the Wendover airfield means experiencing the atmosphere of the cold war and the 50's/60's atomic developments. It's mostly deserted, but if you like post-war industrial design, it's a must to visit!

Was fortunate to stumble on this little piece of history.. Hard to believe something so great started so close to home. Landed in a small plane here.. Very quaint and efficient airport.

The historical value to this little airfield is immeasurable! The Enola Gay was loaded at Wendover Airfield for that historical flight! Some very interesting sights and very sad to say the base itself is in such disrepair! The museum is very interesting and certainly worth a visit.

They had a short informative video and you just looked around and read about the items showcases at the museum. Okay but no one there to really tell you a lot about what you were seeing.

Airfield was really historical. I learned a lot here and saw the world war airplane! I felt really good coming here.

By chance - because the racing on the nearby Bonneville Salt Flats had been cancelled - we thought we would visit the Historic Wendover Airfield Museum. It is really difficult to find and we almost gave up the quest. However, with the help of several people, we did find the Museum and we were glad we did so. Having seen... More

I was in Wendover to photograph the World of Speed Event on the Bonneville Salt Flats, and as there is very little to do in Wendover other than gamble, I visited this Airfield. The Air Show happened to be going on that day, so it made the visit well worthwhile. You can easily kill an hour or so walking around... More

Stopped here with my 16yo niece. We both enjoyed it way more then we ever thought possible. A piece of US History right here in the desert! This base holds the hanger for the Enola Gay, the aircraft that dropped bombs on both Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A short tour, definitely worth visiting.
