  • Loved this WWII air museum. Has cool cars too. Right on the airport and in a hangar. Clean, neat, no garbage lying around. Thumbs up.
  • One of the best air museums in the country. The hangar is run by a 94-year old general. The WWII planes and cars are in perfect condition. My guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. In the back, there is an unobstructed view of the SNA runway, which makes this an amazing place to plane spot.
  • Planes are in top-notch condition and there are a few very knowledgeable gentlemen that will guide you through. We had a great time with Mr. Mo as our guide today. They have a classic Mercedes Benz exhibition until August 22 (2016). Very impressive cars.
  • What a great collection of working aircraft from history. Worth your time.
  • Great place to find rare, unique aircraft, automobiles, Motorcycles, Military Items from WW II. Nice Tour.
