We loved this museum -- it's spotless and well organized. The planes on display are in beautiful condition and the volunteers are enthusiastic and helpful. Telling the personal stories of the veterans really illuminates history.

Actual Flyable aircraft on display. With folks that actually flew some of them give you a real history lesson. Very enjoyable afternoon, especially for an OLD PILOT like myself. Thank you!
