The owner has a fine collection of ex-military aircraft which are operational. On the airport there is also the Aeroknow museum which has a fascinating collection of artefacts, models, books, magazines and memorabilia. Well worth a visit. Job Conger is the owner and custodian.

Small, compact and well done. The displayed aircraft are in pristine condition. The staff was friendly and helpful. Several WW2 fighters . An expansion is underway which will greatly improve the viewing. No charge -just a donation. Well worth the visit.

This small museum is tucked away in the maze of hangars at the airport. It has a fantastic collection of vintage warbirds like few others. They fly. F-4U Corsair, P-51 and others. Lots of side exhibits. Don't miss.

It's small. Don't expect to see a huge museum. But the place is so neat! It's just 1 man's collection of airplanes. Almost all of them still run. Very cool to see all of them! And the young boys who work there are so knowledgeable...More
