Great planes; era 1927 to 1957

We have been there many times. The people are friendly. The planes are all flyable. Anyone living near or visiting from out of town should take a tour.

This is a private collection of old war planes that still fly. You can even go for a ride if you would like. Some of the bombers you can climb into and see how small and tight they really were.

Went to Boeing factory tour then to Historic Flight Foundation. Planes are restored to perfect condition and most still fly. Amazing collection of WWII and Vietnam war era planes and other vehicles used in these wars. First class collection you won't be disappointed. Don't miss Historic Flight Foundation!

An interesting collection of airworthy vintage aircraft including B25, Tigercat and DC3. It is possible to book flights in the collection's aircraft if you have deep pockets.

I have been to many aircraft museums and this on ranks among the best. The variety of the planes, with a focus on WW2 was incredible. You would have to travel to multiple museums to see the aircraft that are displayed here. You had a clear view of the aircraft and nice descriptions and the history of the planes. If... More

Vera and Carl (pilot & copilot) very informative and friendly. I really enjoyed the beautiful trip up thru the San Juan's and back across Whidbey Island. Our 22 month old granddaughter loved the airplanes. Thank you to Jessica for her help.
