Even although far less of the facility is on show than on my previous visit, I still thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
On account of there being fewer aircraft to be amazed at, it meant I paid far more attention to those that were.
Been here several times over the years, was told it was now only open on weekends and for special events. It's scaled down a lot, doesn't have the great restaurant it used to have, and not as many restoration tours. But still a great deal...More
For those who visited Fantasy of Flight a few years ago, the current museum will be a little disappointing. The once huge selection is now 20+ WWI & WWII aircraft, some vintage cars, and some models. Despite this, a visit will still take up to...More
Visited on a Friday (check opening times as they vary a lot) . It is a really great place to see many WWI & WW2 aircraft, most of which are in flying condition in very bright and clean conditions.
Nice gift shop area, plenty of...More
It was sad to see the gates were locked when we went to visit - we were told down the street that they only do events and personal openings now. We wee there several years ago and loved the old planes - hopefully maybe they...More
Kermit Weeks, founder of “Fantasy of Flight” (FOF), has such a hard job. He must decide which of these beautifully restored aircraft to fly on any particular day. My sarcasm aside, here’s an excerpt of his bio:

Due to remodel it is closed for the summer. It reopens on weekend schedule the end of November. The Sunderland is a large plane so I doubt it is in the limited museum. When we were last there, it was not. As far as we know it does not fly. This is a large 'remodel' and will be much larger than ever before when it is done. It is small right now but still interesting. The guides tell interesting stories concerning the aircraft on display.
