  • Worth the visit. If you have an interest in WWII aircraft, this is a must visit. They have a small collection worth seeing and supporting. Most of the planes all fly. My son and I spent 3 hours and enjoyed every minute. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you to everyone who took the time to speak to us, especially Paul, Buck and Jim.
  • Historical aircraft. Interactive and hands-on displays. Walk up to and inspect aircraft and cockpits. F-4 Phantom, MiG-15, B-17 Flying Fortress, B-25 Mitchell, C-47 Skytrain, B-26 Marauder, and lots and lots more Warbirds and rare aircraft. Can tour inside flying aircraft, and book rides on them. Access to hangar and workshop. Extremely friendly Docents and volunteers. Lots of scale models, artwork.
  • No words, AWESOME! Great men and women ready to help. Veterans are free.
  • Fantastic!! We really enjoyed this. My favorite musuem in Arizona. They had live planes going in out of the maintenance area. They had great exhibits, interesting content, and absolutely wide variety of aircraft.
  • Please make sure you give yourself at least 4 hours when visiting. Terrific, honest staff with memorials, displays, and rides (call ahead first).
