Airplane Exhibits, Museums and Airparks in the United States
For those interested in vintage planes of the past, there are indeed lots of DVDs, photographs, and commercial aviation books. But we find that the best way to understand aviation history is to see it up close and personal ... to see the planes, touch them, and sense their size and purpose.
Museums offer an opportunity to learn about the important role of aviation in the history of the United States, and to better appreciate the efforts of the men and women who designed the planes, built them, flew in them, and maintained them.
Located across the United States are a number of fine aviation museums, airplane exhibits, memorials, and airparks which provide excellent historical aviation and warbird exhibits.
