Great spot to visit

Warren gave us a great tour. Wish we could be there to see them fly. Loved the B25 and the Catalina. Two teens loved it, didn't want to leave.

I went here with my family last year. Very good history and amazing planes. There was a WW2 vet on our tour sitting in a wheel chair. One of the planes he flew in the war was out on the tarmac. This gentlemen said he hadn't seen or touched the plane since the 40's. He got out of his chair,... More

A privately owned museum. "Brooks" was our tour guide volunteer. Very knowledgeable and friendly. The museum was great. I loved all the different planes from 1906 and up. The Great War hanger was really cool. There is also Navy, Army, German, hangers. Even an original water tank.

This collection of vintage military planes is more than impressive. The museum is out in the Pungo section of Virginia Beach but worth the nice drive in the country. I would really recommend this if you are in Va Beach on vacation. A must see.

This museum is rare in that most of the exhibits are functional, airworthy planes. I had never heard of this attraction, even though I've called Virginia Beach "home" since about 1997. Its setting is amongst the fields and farms of Pungo, which in itself is a very enjoyable area to visit. The volunteer guides were knowledgeable and entertaining, and managed... More

This fabulous Museum was the highlight of our trip to Virginia Beach. The absolutely exceptional docents give you as much or as little info as you want. I loved the flying jackets the docents were wearing. What I didn't realise until later during our tour is that they aren't Museum provided uniform....they are the actually flying jackets these brave aviators... More

Been to this museum a few times and everything there flys. Great collection of warbirds and a well educated and friend crew. I recommend checking their website to see what scheduled to fly and special events. But don't miss there "Warbirds Over the Beach" event held every year, it's a site to see.
