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.

I was really looking forward to seeing these aircraft as I have always been fascinated them. And I was not disappointed when I arrived. These aircraft are in mint condition. They are all kept in two hangers with the floor so clean you could eat off of it. There are knowledgeable guides that tell the history of the aircraft and some pretty interesting stories behind some of them. We were there on a very chilly and overcast day, so if you plan to go in that type of weather, a sweater would be appropriate for indoors, as there was little to no heat in the hanger. You won't be disappointed in your visit.

Intended to tolerate a 1 1/2 hour visit for plane buff hubby's sake, but he was dragging ME out after 3 hours! This fantastic collection of beautifully restored and maintained aircraft has highly usable informational plaques and a fabulous explanation just inside the door showing the history of aviation in contexts of politics and culture. The planes are all very viewable and fairly up close and we loved the plaques telling not only the history of the type of plane but of each specific plane. The only complaint was they should be put in age order so it's easier to see the progression, even over cultures, of aviation advances. Some true gems we've never seen anywhere else and the Sherman tank video was well worth the time.

An excellent collection of restored aircraft of different vintages! Most of the other reviews for this attraction have hit it spot on! Having been to other flight museums in many different cities, including Dayton's massive Airforce Museum and Boeing field, this collection is smaller and more eclectic. It takes only about two hours to go through the entire collection, so you're not exhausted when you are finished. This attraction is well worth the price of admission and the time it takes to view it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!

If you love all types of planes then this is the place to visit. Each plane on display is the last of it's kind planes and artifacts of World Wars I and II. American, British, German, Japanese, Russian planes including a MIG, Messerschmitt Komet, Mustang, Zero, Spitfire......beautifully displayed and all the fascinating details.

A very nice and varied collection of vintage aircraft. Anyone who is an aircraft buff should go here if you are in the area. Beautifully restored planes from many countries. How I wish I could have sat in all of them!
