They used to have yearly airshows, I'm not sure why they no longer do. I must be honest, I haven't been there in many years, the last time was when a General (I think) flew in the F-15 that now sits out front, so some...More

An amazing collection of aircraft for a small museum. It is a great pity that they sold the working/flying B-17 to cover costs. The grounds are a must see if you have any interest in military aircraft. It is very easy to locate and get...More
