You discover this little jewel of military history out in the country west of Vicksburg. The small regional airport has a hangar with planes and a small, worthwhile WWII museum. When there's an air show, oooh baby! It's a wonderful time with skilled pilots and...More

If you care about aprplanes, particularly War Birds, and if you care about the pilots that flew them and their crews, then this is the most memorable museum you can visit. You will be touched by their memories, their sacrifices, their memorials, and of course...More

Southern Heritage Air Foundation gives a unique lesson on major historical events during World War II and some lesser known stories of unsung heroes. Not to mention, they have actual WWII aircraft that you can book flights in! It's surely a blast into the past!
