This is a fabulous attraction for airplane fanatics because it has rare old planes that fanatics only know from B/W photos. For other people, dusty old planes in an open field will have little appeal. However, there are some nice things to keep kids interested and the sheer size of some planes are worth seeing up close.
Possibly because I was there on a hot August day, I came away with a lot of chigger bites on my lower leg and feet. It is possible to see all the planes without leaving the pavement but I could not resist getting on grass to seeing some planes up close.
The planes are normally sealed up except on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.
Although these planes will never fly again, ex-military staff have restored most of the planes on display to service ready conditions, the huge 10 engined B-36 being a notable exception of being a work in progress. Most of the restoration work is done in hangers that you pass by heading east on Apron Ave within the airport complex. Doors to hangers on south side of Apron Ave would be open when there are people working there.
