I think most people have a fascination with WWII aircraft and for that matter, any military aircraft. I always enjoy walking through museums that are dedicated to our military. Hope you enjoy!

Nice. I love airplanes - the Fokker DR-1 most of all :-) Flying in a B-25 was a (noisy) adventure.

I bet it was quite the adventure. Would love to take a ride in one.

I'm glad that you found this post making your day. I had fun at this museum and have been there a couple of times.

Thanks for the comments!
