Beautiful new facility located near Ellington Air Field. If you are a flying enthusiast this is a must visit while you are in the Houston area. The aircraft here are not rusting relics. Most if not all are in exemplary condition and flyable.

For an aviation buff, it's little short of heaven. Many rare fighters and bombers, many still capable of flight. One really nice feature is the up close view you get of the planes.
