This is not the Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. However, to see the military and civilian aircraft displayed in a flightline hangar, reminiscent of the Smithsonian's Udvar-Hazy museum at Dulles Airport, is a real treat. The overwhelming highlight, and the star of the show is the ACTUAL US Airways Flight 1549 that was floating on the Hudson River on exhibit at THIS museum. It is a structural mess (and very interesting to see in that condition) along with plenty of the objects that were aboard that day. That's very cool, but wait there is more.
There are historical aircraft, military aircraft (F4, A7) experimental aircraft and even the option to tour the interior of an Eastern Airlines DC-7. Don't miss the landing gear from a 747 on the dark back wall.
For an afternoon trip, it's well worth the money, for it's educational value it's priceless.
