Old war birds never die - they just become attractions at the . The working aircraft restoration facility is nicknamed "Bomber-town USA" because most of the planes here are bombers. Once they are operational, they are usually flown away by private collectors, but the museum also houses a permanent collection of about 30 vintage planes in its hangar, with a few big ones out on the tarmac.
The Flying Tigers Warbird Restoration Museum allows visitors a chance to see, smell and touch the history that many only heard about on newsreels in the forties or read about in the classrooms generations later.
Here you can see the restoration process take place and the metamorphosis of these once forgotten hulks of history back to their former glory and then taken out to stretch their wings again right over the museum for all to see and hear!
Open daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
Ample free parking is provided.
Make sure to check out the calendar on the Flying Tigers web site before you visit! There's often something really special going on through each month - and it's well worth planning a trip around their events.
