Super collection of aircraft, both airworthy and static. A good variety from WW1 up to Gulf War. It's well worth a look if your into aviation. Could do with a small cafeteria or something would be my only criticism.

The event was organized fairly well. I didn't like the staff handling my daughters car like a brick but it was alright. The event had many activities for the girls to keep them occupied. Thank you for sponsoring this event for the Girl Scouts.
