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.

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
