This place was kind of cool, but they were getting ready for an airshow the next day. Six or seven planes were away from their normal display location and some of the interactive kiosks were unplugged. The theater was also closed for the day, otherwise this place would get four stars.

I have been to the Heritage collection 3 times now and seem to always want to go back often. There is a schedule when a few planes are rolled out onto the field and flown. It is fantastic to see these WWII planes flying again.

The restoration of these planes is amazing, so well done. The planes are up to the 50's and the collection is so varied. The displays are through but the docents are old pilots who know the ins and outs of these vintage planes. Fun place to visit.

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
