Talk to a WW2 B-17 pilot and crawl inside a WW2 B-17 bomber, that still flies.
My wife and I came to see the large collection of well preserved military aircraft. The staff were very friendly and helpful. All are volunteers. The highlight, though, was talking to volunteer Fred Engstrom, who is now 97 years old! He flew 25 bombing missions as a pilot of a B-17 bomber in World War Two. He is still very alert and is sharp as a tack. I learned a lot from him, and it was a an honor to talk to such a part of living history. Even the youngest World War Two vets are in their late 90's now, and there are so few alive still.

Another big highlight was being able to climb inside a B-17 bomber that still flies. It has been perfectly restored by the Commemorative Air Force volunteers. They also had a flying C-47 transport plane (the military version of the civilian DC-3).

I highly recommend this museum. It is also great to take kids too, so they can talk to people who were part of history. The docents are good at explaining things to the kids too. It only cost $15 for an adult ticket. A great value.

A large hanger with military aircraft from WW I thru Vietnam. Hour long tours are given with knowledgeable volunteers. A second area houses the repair and restoration hanger. Two operational WW II bombers may be on display, however in September 2021 the two were out on tour.

Great hidden gem

I’ve lived in the valley for 5 years and never knew this existed. It is a great museum for military aircraft enthusiasts. The docents manning the museum know a lot about each aircraft and are very eager to share. I’d recommend taking the tour. We got into the B-17 and it was really an education experience. Each aircraft is well maintained and cared for. If you compare it to the Pima Air and Space Museum, it is smaller. But the aircrafts are in better shape in Mesa. I hesitated to take my elderly parents to Pima and Space because they have difficulty walking. This museum is much more manageable.

See aircraft up close and learn their history
Amazing stories that bring history to life when you see the actual aircraft from battles. Special programs offered and flights on warbirds.

One of the best museum experiences I've had!
This is just one of them great finds that you stumble across when visiting an area you're not familiar with. I've been to a lot of places with great displays but this place really personalizes the entire visit for you. They may not have the largest collection but believe me when I say they let you get up close and personal to each and every plane. The volunteers that give the tours here are extremely knowledgeable about everything and are happy to discuss it all with you. The repair hanger where they restore the planes also lets you get up close to the guys that work on them and inside the planes as well. Nothing here is off limits like some museums that have most everything roped off. If you are a history buff or just like looking at planes and helicopters you absolutely have to stop in here. The admission prices are great and it's an experience you won't soon forget.

Great museum! Take the flights! Well worth it to fly in history!
Such a cool place to see, feel, and fly in history! As soon as you walk into the hangar the planes are on display, a lot to see and learn, a cinema room, great staff, a nice gift shop, but by far the best thing to do is one of the flights! They range from around $80 to up to $800 on the various WWII era planes they fly. Well worth it! Where else can you fly in those planes! I'm glad I got to take advantage of it.

It all starts when you pull into the parking lot, an see the planes on the outdoor displays. The quality and restoration of these older aircraft is unbelievable. The information contained in the standing displays is over whelming. They have staff (volunteers) who know the history and can answer any question you have.

Great Place to Stop In & Visit with Vets & too see some of the Aircraft used in WWI, WWII, Vietnam War & others
Friend of mine asked if I'd be interested in stopping in at this Museum. I'd said sure why not, let's check it out.
Well, this place surprised me; we were met with one of workers immediately as we walk through door. He quickly gave a low down on what this place was & what it represented, plus he suggested "you should go an check out the D17 plane in the shop, cause the boys just about have it ready for a test flight, they're doing some final repairs & checks before it's 1st test flight after the rebuild of the D17".
I was amazed that we were allowed in the shop to snoop around & interact with Mechanics.
Learnt that a lot of volunteers are Veterans that work there. We spoke with several of them; telling story's their experience while in the Service plus story's of the planes themselves of what the planes function was in the War and plus the importance of each of the planes had as well in the War.
This is definitely a GEM, I wouldn't say it's Hidden, but definitely a GEM of a place!!!!
