Get a close-up view of more than 60 planes, plus missiles and bombs, on your self-guided tour through this museum. Aircraft on display include the rare B-17 "Flying Fortress," one of the few P-38s around, the SR-71 "Blackbird" spy plane, a Soviet MiG-21 fighter, and two aircraft that are still flyable: a JN-4 "Jenney" and a Piper L-4J "Grasshopper," painted and marked to look like one that flew in support of the Allied invasion of North Africa in November 1942. Other exhibits include a World War II chapel, an exhibit of historic Air Force uniforms, a fire truck, a Gatling gun, and a Norden bombsight. Displays illustrate the history of the Air Force, how aircraft fly, and what the Air Force does today. The gift shop offers a wide range of Air Force-related items. Allow 1 hour.
