  • We had some time so decided to visit the Lyon Air Museum in Santa Ana California. It was fairly easy to find and is right on the runway of the airport so some great plane watching. Everything was very...  more »
  • Seven beautifully restored antique planes, a few older motorcycles, several special cars, a small, constantly-running movie theater and a friendly staff make this a fun, interesting place to visit.  more »

  • Great museum! Very glad to have stumbled across it while waiting for a flight!
  • Lyon Air Museum at the Academy is great no matter how you cut it. If you don't find running around the Academy of Science with booze and music fun then you need to stay home with your PlayStation and keep going on your Porn Hub dates. My only gripe about this is the long lines for entry. Open up one more and add two scanners. Everyone is paying 12 bucks a pop so you can afford another 100 bucks for staff and 400 bucks for scanners.
  • 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.
  • Came here to shoot some photos for MCN, entirely because they have one of only 10 airworthy B-17 Flying Fortress planes from WWII era. They also have several other interesting planes, cars and motorcycles, well worth it for vehicle buffs.
  • 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.
