I really enjoyed this tour. We first got a "briefing" on the history of WWII. Then we walked through different hangars where people are restoring planes, not just to look beautiful, but so they can fly again. Each plane has its own interesting stories. They have a new hangar and event center opening soon - can't wait to see it!
The National Museum of WWII Aviation is one of those hidden gems that should be high on the list of everyone visiting Colorado Springs. For those of you that live here in the Springs, you should bring all of your out of town visitors. If you homeschool, this is a great field trip. Great WWII airplanes with tons of supporting displays. Be sure to do the 2-hour guided tour with one of the volunteer docents. If you pay online ahead of time, you'll save a couple bucks. Most of the planes (like the P-38, B-25, and more) are fully restored and are still flown.
