“Not worth the trip...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

If this location is the exhibit located on East McKinley adjacent to The California Air National Guard Base at The Fresno Air Terminal (aka Fresno Yosemite International Airport), then don't waste your time. The planes on display are on the base, and can only be viewed from the road as you drive by. There is no place to stop. It would be nice to park and look at the old fighter planes once used by The 144th Fighter Interceptor Wing based at FAT. If you want an up close and personal experience with old military aircraft, I strongly urge you to take the 1 hour drive North to the Castle Air Museum in Merced. They have one of the best outdoor displays on the west coast, including a British Avro Vulcan Bomber, one of only 3 on display in the U.S.
