Until we visited this airfield, we did not realize so much history in this area regarding the war. It was fun to drive around and read all of the historical signage to give us a better understanding of what happened here.

We stopped here after the Bonneville Salt Flats and had a great time , a well presented museum with significantly important historic events and the Con Air plane! Don't miss the climb up the old control tower they are hoping to restore

This airfield has the airplane hangar that housed the Enola Gay. Colonel Paul Tibbets and his crew trained here and took off from this spot for their historic, controversial missions that ended World War II. A must-see to honor these men for their service.
