Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for kids under 12. World War II veterans are welcome to attend at no charge.

I had a chance to attend the event in the summer of 2015 and thought it was a very impressive display of aircraft. You're welcome to climb right up in these planes, and get a real sense of what it was like flying a bombing run over Germany during the worlds second great war. And of course I had to be a nerd and pose with the machine gun.


Something quick to consider if you're going to check it out. For those with young children, keep them close while in the aircraft. There are lots of nooks and crannies that could be an issue if they wander off.
