WOW, Is all I can say, we have been to a lot of air museum’s but this one takes the cake. Just huge, 5 massive building filled with planes and 80 acres of outdoor plane displays. Spent 5 hours there, and that wasn’t enough, will more than likely go back. saw planes I have never seen before, the B-52, B-24, B-29 ,saw a F-14 tomcat like in the movie Top Gun, that was cool. Many , many other’s but just an amazing sight. The B-17, and the large building it was in, was neat because it was in the 390th bomb group, of the famous 8th air force during the war. The place was a great tribute to all the men, and yes some women who served, and sacrificed during the war. Walking beneath the wings of these giant machines was a unique experience.
Are you serious! . . .I’m going in there?!
The men decorated their jackets with squadron patches, nose art, slogans and bombs, which represented the number of missions they flew.

Bill had to cancel his visit due to covid in 2020. Maybe he’ll get there in the future. This post will definitely temp him. 😁
Looks like a great museum. Did you take the airplane graveyard bus tour? In had reservations and received the necessary clearance but never got to go as everything shutdown for covid. I would hate to be one of those gunners in the glass turret in the bombers with 14% chance of surviving. Dave did you ever get in? If so, did you out or are you still stuck in the turret😄. You should also check out Wright Patterson Air Base in Dayton Ohio if you have never been. Worth the trip
The graveyard is still closed, I have no idea how anyone ever got in those ball turrets, so much equipment and no room.
Very impressive. Great pictures and a great tribute to our servicemen and women
