Over 70 historic aircraft are on display both in and
outside of the main museum building. Many famous record breaking planes such
as the Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" are represented as well as the strategic
bombers and fighters of the Cold War Period. World War II is well represented
by planes such as the B-17 Flying Fortress, the B-25 Mitchell bomber, the
Douglas A/B-26 Invader, and the magnificent B-29 Superfortress. Inside the
visitor will find some rare and unusual aircraft including a P-59 fighter,
the first operational jet adopted by the U.S. Air Force over 50 years ago.
