A really good range of aircraft and engines on display. For me the highlight was the chance to see the remains of airframe of the Flettner Colibri, a German WW2 intermeshing rotor helicopter. Being able to go into the B2 Vulcan was also quite an...More

Some of this is interesting. The outside is a scrapyard, but does have some great planes. The Vulcan makes it. Inside is a mix of bits and is quirky. Staff a bit miserable. Was average overall, pricey with the Grand-kids.
