I have been going to the air museum for over 40 year and each time we go you see new and interesting things. This is a flying museum, check the calendar and visit on certain weekends where they will be flying the airplanes.

The planes are displayed very well and the docents are very informative. Hangars full of history. I liked it all but the WW2 jet engines I had not seen before.
