This is a small facility but has a number of interesting aircraft you can see and in some cases actually board. The DC3 that was there the day we visited was an outstanding example. It was the first I've seen with a passenger configuration.

We went here in March of this year and took my father in law. Had a great time and he loved seeing all the planes. Very interesting and lots to see and do. He was very impressed with it.

Lots of memorabilia, videos and flying things of many sizes to walk around. People to ask questions of were plentiful. Admission is a bit pricey but it a good cause. They are still reconstructing other planes. We spent a couple of hours there.
