  • There are eight or ten truly important aviation museums in the USA today, and this is one of them. As an aviator and amateur aviation historian I have been remiss in not visiting POF sooner. This is t...  read more »
  • Here to make things with it that you don't have to expect engines are started in Europe where you listed there is also actually having flown those planes and they are also restored here is all to admire plus you get a super detailed explanation by the many volunteers who walk around here well worth a few hours walking around

  • I think it's best Museum for aviation enthusiasts. Perfect original condition as the Japan aircraft flyable zero fighter 52 type (only in the world), Raiden fighter, carrier-based attack aircraft "Comet" a rocket-powered fighter "shusui" are displayed. In addition, volunteers in restoration work falls in the maintenance shop type 99 carrier Dive Bomber man took us to special. And take another 10 to 15 years to be restored to flying condition for that weekend, fixing little by little. Made this part I'm showed their handmade auxiliary wing parts. Variant of x-1 aircraft such as the p-51 Mustang, not uncommon, but in the world's first supersonic experimental aircraft, the b-29 b-50, MacArthur Lockheed constellation (the same model, but not itself), many rare aircraft, such as the B-17G type, "the world's only" of was a bout of inspiring museum exhibits often exhibits and aircraft in hand and know people. From Los Angeles City about an hour in the car and the car is tsukaereba access is good, so those who like take a look at recommended visits. Caught plenty of breakfast so no eating establishments, from going to immerse yourself in the tour, forget the diet?

  • This is perhaps the most impressive collection of aircraft I have seen ever. They have some real rarities, like the only genuine zero that still flies, a bf 109 under restoration and a fw190 replica, and that is only the top of the iceberg. As far as museums go however it was lacking in staff and information, it felt more like a collection of aircraft, a very impressive one admittedly. They would do well to look to the museum in palm spring for how to improve. I only ever saw one staff, and that was the woman at the front desk, selling the tickets and souvenirs.
  • Great place to visit if you have ANY interest in aviation and/or history. This place has certain flyable aircraft that can only be seen here. The P-26 Peashooter comes to mind, along with the Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero. One hanger is a maintenance and restoration facility for these aircraft, so bear in mind it can be a little "dirty" if your not used to that environment. Great museum and I am a regular visitor. Love it!
  • Awesome visit, planes are in perfect condition, explanations are detailed and clear. As aircraft lover we had a great time!
  • Great collection of planes and things pertaining to flight. They will also cater events in a hanger for large groups or parties. Nice people and it's worth a visit
  • Awesome display of aviation history. Friendly, courteous and informative staff. A must see for all aviation and history enthusiasts.
