Most recent trip was the first flying day of 2014. We came expecting 3 or 4 aircraft to perform as per the web calendar. Instead we get a 3 hour 15 plane airshow - all free. Wandered the display area including the restoration shops - just fascinating bit of history and well done to the preservationists working so hard there.

If you are an aviation enthusiast, you must see this exhibit. They have the largest collection of flying heritage aircraft. The aircraft have all been restored to an amazing flyable condition. They also have some armored vehicles, a German V2 rocket and some space craft. A great exhibit!

On display is a relatively small collection of mostly WWII era aircraft and armor, but what a collection it is! Most of the aircraft have been restored to flying condition including the only flyable FW-190D left in the world. This aircraft is no longer being flown since it is among the last of it's kind. The vintage aircraft with biggest... More

This airplane museum is well worth the visit. We attended on a Sunday and it was a slower day. A Docent came up to us and asked if we would like a tour? How impressive! We obviously said yes. He showed us the various planes, rockets and various war vehicles. He also gave us a great dialogue as we went.... More

I have been here a few times during the times that they have flown some of the planes on display. This is a super cool collection. Would recommend you look at their website for when they are flying planes.

A group of us went to see this collection together. We were lucky to have a very knowledgeable docent take us around on a tour through the two buildings. He provided us with a lot of background on the various planes and other items on display. When you see what these planes look like before being restored, then after, it... More

Lingkoping, Sweden has a really cool Aircraft and military museum. Our group was given a tour by a 90+ year old who had flown several of the aircraft in WW2. It was a great experience. The aircraft are in great shape, but i dont think they fly them. The Paul Allen collection is just amazing. pristine condition, and they fly... More

This museum features 2 attractions; One is the static display of WW2 aircraft in a hangar at the southern end of Paine Field. They have some really interesting and rare aircraft including a Fochwolf model D, Japanese Zero, Thunderbolt etc. The other is flying demonstrations during weekends usually in summer. It's one thing to walk around a Spitfire and another... More

If you're into aviation history, this place is extremely interesting. We had our own personal guide, who walked us around every aircraft. We could touch and feel aircraft 50, 60, 70 years old that have been lovingly restored and maintained. We even went out on the tarmac and were able to climb up into the actual cockpit of a WWII...

Nothing else like this collection of historic yet airworthy planes on display as well as in the air. Certain days are free to watch.
