“Excellent Collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

An excellent collection of restored aircraft of different vintages! Most of the other reviews for this attraction have hit it spot on! Having been to other flight museums in many different cities, including Dayton's massive Airforce Museum and Boeing field, this collection is smaller and more eclectic. It takes only about two hours to go through the entire collection, so you're not exhausted when you are finished. This attraction is well worth the price of admission and the time it takes to view it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!

“A top-flight experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

A very nice and varied collection of vintage aircraft. Anyone who is an aircraft buff should go here if you are in the area. Beautifully restored planes from many countries. How I wish I could have sat in all of them!

“See it and believe it.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

These aircraft are all flyable and are flown often. They are classic WWII fighters from the USA, UK, Germany and Russia. Several may well be the only ones left anywhere. This display is in a class by itself. One example of the class of the display. No drip pans here. A floor mat and a silver bucket. Yes a small yet simple touch which shows the nature of the display. Every touch needed to set off the great aircraft has been done. No expense spared and we get to see some of the only remaining war birds in a perfect setting. Make sure you see this museum, you will not regret it.....

“Small but Mighty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

This isn't a huge collection, but it certainly is awesome. Each plane on display is the last of it's kind planes and artifacts of World Wars I and II. American, British, German, Japanese, Russian planes including a MIG, Messerschmitt Komet, Mustang, Zero, Spitfire......beautifully displayed and all the fascinating details of each specific plane. Artifacts include tanks, weapons, tank destroyers and a German unmanned flying bomb, etc.

Awesome museum....also on the same site is the Museum of Flight’s Restoration Center, open to the public and where you can see planes being restored. The actual Museum of Flight is in Seattle and is awesome: including the original Air Force One and a Concorde, both of which you can actually climb aboard
