Dedicated to World War II aircraft, the exhibits include a B-24 "Liberator" heavy bomber, a Mitchell B-25 of the type used in the Doolittle raid on Tokyo, an A -25, and suspended overhead are rare combat gliders.
You'll also view the Fi-156 "Storch," a rare WWII German light observation plane, along with one of the few remaining examples of the German V-1 "Buzz Bomb," displayed on a replica launching ramp with attending ground crew.
Plan at least an hour to enjoy the large number of exhibits, aircraft, vehicles, training simulators and engines. If you haven't visited the museum recently will notice many exhibits have changed or been added.
