very cool museum of all things air Force and Navy flight. I love asking one of the Docent's a question, most of them are retired military and have fascinating stories to tell. They are more interesting than the actual museum!

This is definitely history while still in progress. You get to see, look, learn, and climb into history. Air Force personnel are available to answer questions as well as to add details.
