Attraction details
Owner description: The aircraft, vehicles and artifacts in the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum are rare treasures of military technology — a testament to the era’s engineering skill and humanity’s spirit during the world conflicts of the 20th century. On rotation in our working hangar are military artifacts from the United States, Britain, Germany, Soviet Union and Japan, acquired by Paul G. Allen and restored with unparalleled authenticity to share with the public. FHCAM is operated by Friends of Flying Heritage, a 501(c)(3) organization committed to educating people about these rare historic aircraft and artifacts. The museum is currently experiencing rapid growth, bringing in exciting new wonders like the Republic F-105 Thunderchief, de Havilland Mosquito and dozens of new artifacts in 2017.

“Well worth the visit”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

We went here after the Boeing Future of Flight tour. This was half the price and more than 10 times better. The planes are well displayed with both general descriptions and ones specific to that plane. In several areas, there are audio/video presentations often including the pilots who flew those specific planes, and the audio/video part was very well done: we watched every one. Really liked seeing SpaceShipOne and the X-Prize.

“A small but very well curated collection of WWII aircraft”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

My son is a big buff of WWII aircraft and was eager to visit the Flying Heritage Collection. Compared to other aircraft collections we've seen, it was small. However, this is an excellent representation of WWII aircraft which have been beautifully restore to full operation. The interpretation is some of the best I've ever seem, Highly recommended.

“Flying old war birds”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Enjoyed the thrill of watching a World War Two US P-51 Mustang and British Spitfire taxi by, take off, fly in formation and make several low passes over the field. Inside the spotless hangar, saw many other fully restored and flyable aircraft from the USA, Britain, Germany and Japan displayed neatly with signs explaining their history. Docents (hosts) abound to lead informal groups around, describe the exhibits and answer questions. Our mixed group of seniors, younger adults, teenagers and preteens all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

“A Rare Glimpse of Time Immortal”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

The Paul Allen collection of one of a kind of rare aircraft tells the tale of the importance the development of airpower that led the world's nations to war.
Like some museums that require a guide. You can read and listen at various points about each aircraft and their significance
This collection is stunning not only to the aficionado ,but to those learning about this time in history. or to people whose interest are shared in the common bond of freedom. Many men and women gave greatly to their country,this collection of airplanes is a quiet statement to their
sacrifice.

This museum is very convenient to visit if you are going on the Boeing Tour. Otherwise is is great to visit as a separate activity or if you have limited time.
