A Static B-52 Bomber
Jun 2019
This park is exactly as the name suggests. A big old B-52 bomber located at the airport. It is hidden away and access is via Cargo Road and Bear Road but, worth the detour. It is wonderful to get close to such a huge plane and see the scale of it. It is also a good place to stretch your legs before a flight and a good place for photos.

Amazing B52 on display at Orlando Airport.
Aug 2019
We have been visiting Orlando for many years now and never realised this was here at airport. We came to MCO to meet two of our sons who were joining us part way through our holiday, and were looking for something to do to pass some time. It was only by chance I saw this while looking at google maps! It is located at the North West area of the international airport, at the intersection of 528 & Jeff Fuqua Blvd, and can be clearly seen on google maps. It is free to visit, and you can walk right up to the B52. There is a viewing platform so you can get photos looking directly at the cockpit windows. Also here there is the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority K-9 Memorial. Well worth a visit, if only to see how immense these aircraft were! It is just a 10 minute drive from the main terminal building, and you can spend as much time as you want looking around. Also a good place to watch the planes coming in to land!

EASY to Get To / Free & Worth the Stop if in Orlando
Nov 2019
Check out the following reviews and search on YouTube - good stuff will be found. I was in SAC and worked on H model B52s. This park is an oasis for me - I have gone out there rain or shine - heat or cold and sat with this giant veteran of Vietnam and the Cold War. Even on static display - the Stratofortress retains its power - it's a kind of magic.

Very nice – hard to get to.
Nov 2019
This is a hidden gem of a B-52 display nestled in the northwest corner of the Orlando airport. It is a little difficult to get to and has limited parking. The day that we visited the grounds were well kept. The plane looks well restored and maintained. There is a building in front of the plane that allows for a good place for observation and picture taking. It is a good place for B-52, WWII and aviation enthusiasts to visit.

Up Close With the B52
Jul 2019
This is located very close to Orlando's International Airport - and is in a very quite park.

The B-52 is well maintained and as others have said you can get right up to it. We stopped off whilst travelling to Kennedy Space Centre - and if you're not in a particular hurry and have the odd 15 mins to spare - its certainly worth a visit to add a few photo's to your holiday album.

Up close to a B52!
May 2019 • Solo
Pretty cool opportunity to walk under and around a B52. Not a lot of info there, so if you're curious, Google it. Might be neat to see at night if the gates ate open...looks like there are a number of spotlights around it. Easy parking, make sure you go straight to the B52 lot, not the Uber/Lyft driver staging lot next door.

No, they won’t let you taker for a fly, but you can look and touch am actual B-52, like the ones that flew from McCoy AFB before it became Orlando International. It’s FREE, but you did pay for the plane via taxes

Very quiet park, not hard to find. The aircraft was in pretty good condition and you can walk all around and under it. Huge aircraft.

Worth visiting

Take a look at a retired B-52 bomber in a free Memorial Park is worth visiting. Read up on the B-52 before visiting and it will improve your experience.
