War-movie buffs can step inside five military aircraft they’ve only seen pictured in films, including Tora! Tora! Tora!, Memphis Belle, Red Tails, Pearl Harbor and Apocalypse Now, and learn the real stories of these pieces of aviation history. There’ll be three World War II bombers (Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated B-24 Liberator and North American B-25 Mitchell), a WWII fighter (North American P-51 Mustang) and a Vietnam-era Huey helicopter. Visitors are invited to explore the aircraft inside and out; those with deep affection and even deeper pockets can take a 30-minute flight in one.
Aircraft: Boeing B-17G "Flying Fortress," Consolidated B-24J "Liberator," North American B-25 "Mitchell," North American TF-51D "Mustang."
