The tour guides are mostly old pilots retired so the stories you get to hear are real. To me they are truly heroes!

Well, it's kind of hard to find so you might want to use your GPS to find the place. This place is so clean you could eat off of the floor (not suggesting you do so) but, you get the point. Paul Allen, has done a great job of collecting these war birds and machines from all parts of the... More

You can't take photos on the Boeing Tour, but you can in the Flying Heritage Collection. Last-of-its-kind planes that are still flyable. Docents are retired military with terrific stories. Everything is displayed so beautifully. So glad we visited this.

A truly wonderful collection of mostly WWII aircraft and some artillary/tanks. The photo strips were excellent. The videos were very informative, especially the "NIGHTWITCHES". I was especially impressed by the aircraft's info card. But, the part of the card I found most interesting was the section on the history of the aircraft on display. I have never seen this presented... More

My husband loved that you could touch and smell the planes, put your head in the engine bays and talk to the people who restored them. Got to see a P51 Mustang take off that was in the museum display. It is a working museum.

If you like history and mashinery - it is for you. Just few miles from Boeing factory (but unrelated) you can "touch German, American, Russian, UK, Japanese planes and tanks, see real V2 rocket first rocket propelled messerschmit. Read the stories of it and of that particular plane or tank.

I could see myself in the shine on the Hellcat!! This is an excellent collection of international Warbirds. Russian, British, American, German - the fellows that volunteer actually admitted that the Hurricane was Canadian! According to my wife, it needs a Corsair, but all in all it was a great & informative visit. Now I have to get there for... More

This collection, located near Paine Field in Everett, Washington, is well worth a visit for anyone who loves aviation, particularly WWII Warbirds. While not as large or comprehensive as the Museum of Flight (MoF) in Seattle, this has the distinction of being comprised entirely of flying examples of some notable aircraft, and almost all are flown regularly (there are two,...
