The F111 alone was well worth taking the time to visit this interesting museum. I took my grandson as he loves aircraft and he was in air heaven as he played on the helicopter and the controls of an old airliner. He loved the jet fighters and talked about for hours afterwards.

Well I told the girls "this won't take long!" not expecting too much and almost 2 hours later we left the museum, and our trip was cut short by the insanely hot weather and a thunderstorm. The inside displays cover a lot of history and the outside aircraft were far more than I expected, with a F111 taking centre stage,... More

Must see for anyone who loves aircraft. They had so much information and history to share. Loads of planes and helicopters on display. It was so interesting.

It was fun being QAM. Kids and adults enjoyed The exhibits and took us back in time. Engine run was spectacular.

Came here on the open running aero engines day, which was great! Only happens a few times a year where they crank up antique engines that roar to life! There were over 70 planes on display, some beautifully restored. Great for antique airplane buffs. There were ice cream trucks, sausage sizzle, and a kids playing area for the others whilst... More

Right up there with the best air museums in the country. Get up close to a real F1-11 and see some of the great military jets from the Cold War. Set aside a few hours and be sure to take a hat.

Amazing variety of aircraft with some in amazing condition like the F 111. However some of the aircraft are very tired but I actually like some patina to add some variety.

Wanted to bring my kids here...and they were not disappointed. Lots of interesting planes for them to see and choppers. My favourites were the F-111 and the A2-310 Huey. Definitely worth a visit and good value at $30 for a family ticket.

Thank kazzie1999
