Good variety of historic aircraft. Seeing the museum's World War II P-51 Mustang fighter power up was especially thrilling. You can schedule rides in several of the aircraft and we saw several taxi off to the runway.

Take the time to look this facility up online. As well as restored aircraft from America's aviation timeline there are many pictures and informative postings. There is also the opportunity to purchase some actual dual flight time on several historical machines. Aviators and enthusiasts must...More

Loved it here, volunteers are very knowledgeable, the planes are restored to pristine condition, loved to see the Texans and Mustangs fly on the weekend of the air show in May.

Loved our visit here. A good collection of planes and helicopters and a nice little gift shop. Very friendly staff. Only complaint is that the hangars were a little to hot..

My teenage son is very into old military things and Cavanaugh does not disappoint. There were several planes to check out and lots of information to read about all of them.

Exciting way to learn and teach history for any age visitor. Aviation history and period history. Unique opportunity to see airplanes that existed before Addison itself! Most are original, four hangers' worth. At $10 admission fee, cheaper and infinitely more interesting than a movie.
