It all starts when you pull into the parking lot, an see the planes on the outdoor displays. The quality and restoration of these older aircraft is unbelievable. The information contained in the standing displays is over whelming. They have staff (volunteers) who know the history and can answer any question you have.

Great collection of WW2 aircraft, most of which fly and you can purchase flights in. Great displays of WW2 history.

Friend of mine asked if I'd be interested in stopping in at this Museum. I'd said sure why not, let's check it out. Well, this place surprised me; we were met with one of workers immediately as we walk through door. He quickly gave a low down on what this place was & what it represented, plus he suggested "you should go an check out the D17 plane in the shop, cause the boys just about have it ready for a test flight, they're doing some final repairs & checks before it's 1st test flight after the rebuild of the D17". I was amazed that we were allowed in the shop to snoop around & interact with Mechanics. Learnt that a lot of volunteers are Veterans that work there. We spoke with several of them; telling story's their experience while in the Service plus story's of the planes themselves of what the planes function was in the War and plus the importance of each of the planes had as well in the War. This is definitely a GEM, I wouldn't say it's Hidden, but definitely a GEM of a place!!!!

Great place to take children and grandchildren for a history lesson. Liked the orginal name Confederate Air Force. It is evident the PC crowd had influence for the name change. Lost the history of the museum.

We went on a week day morning and got a private tour by a docent who thought new on the job had a knowledge of each plane that was amazing. Great stories about them and how well they operated during the war. I have seen their planes under the old name, at many airport events around the country, but all were her from the B-29 to a bi-wing from WWI. Rides were available, but we did not go. We were able to climb into the bay of the B-17 and if more agile one could go from stem to stern, but agility is not my forte any longer. Interestingly, the even have a MIG that came from Hungary. All staff were top notch; friendly and knowledgeable. We were there for over two hours and never a dull moment.
