My grandson is wild about this place. Whenever there is a special event with demonstrations of the various planes taking off and landing, we can't leave until the event is over. The displays are great because you can get up close to them. The flight demos are truly amazing.

The Military Aviation Museum has a nice collection of historical aircraft and has planned activities throughout the year. My part of their collection is the World War 2 planes.

One of a kind aviation museum. Unique WWII planes that are "flight ready". Take one of the free tours to get history and many insights. The " maintenance " area past the museum always has something different last time they were rebuilding a WWII glider.

The museum's collection of WWI and WWII aircraft is interesting, and the special event air shows are outstanding. Everything is first class! We have attending several air shows there, and air show entertainment includes musical performances and food vendors.

First of all if you love old planes this place is awesome. There are so many in the two hangers going all the way back to the Wright Bros. Replica. Looking at these old planes that I had only previously seen in old war movies was amazing. I couldn't believe just how big these planes really were. It was so... More

Its an amazing collection, most are operational, and you can take a ride in a Stedman trainer for $149, worth every penny too! Once each year they have an air show with these aircraft...most authentic working WW1, WW2 aircraft from USA and Germany I've seen!

Airplanes from all eras are displayed here in a tremendous hanger in the fields not far from Virginia Beach. Special events are spectacular with camp reenactments, refreshments and glorious air shows. Get up close and talk with the pilots about their adventures in times past. Great for all ages! Bring folding chairs because you actually sit on the grass not... More
