Great collection of some iconic aircraft some of which are lovingly maintained in flying condition. The B17 could be a bit better preserved as it seems it has been left to its own devices and it is sad to see such a historic aircraft deteriorate...More

They have a wonderful collection of World War 2 aircraft from the US, Britain and Germany, many which are still flying! Lots of history recorded. There's also a lot of static displays to see. A must see for anyone interested in aviation.

Great museum, a working museum. Lots of displays of a wide variety of aircraft from WWII and the early jet era. They do restoration of aircraft there so some of their displays actually fly. This would be a 5 star place if they could improve...More

This the one of the most amazing collections of flying vintage aircraft you can see in one place. You are free to walk from exhibit to exhibit, hangar to hanger and get up close (enough to touch) and personal with these rare aircraft.

As an Air Force crew chief (retired) I could easily spend a day there checking out all the planes and related items. A really nicely set up museum with very helpful people and lots of interesting exhibits. Any airplane buff would enjoy it
