Originals, replicas & models fill hangars.
My engineer husband is fascinated with and knowledgeable about aircraft and spacecraft, so when we travel, we visit any nearby museums specializing in those technologies. Long on his bucket list was the Planes of Fame Museum that documents a big chunk aviation history, aims to inspire interest in aviation, educate the public about aerial warfare and honors aviation pioneers and veterans. It is dedicated to the preservation, perpetuation and exhibition of historical aircraft and to the men and women who devoted their lives to flight, especially military aviation.
The collection in largely World War II era airplanes, some restored to flying condition and stars of the museum’s annual air show each May. I’m not captivated by the technology, but I am interested in the history represented there.
Here are some miscellaneous photos I took at the museum and don’t have the knowledge to caption, so just enjoy them::
