Entry way and their dolphin. I thought the gull wings on the dolphin were very clever.
Once you pay your admission, you are greeted by a docent and an upside-down Sopwith Pup, complete with pilot and streaming scarf.
There were so many planes to see! We are posting a few of our favorites. We took many, many more photos than we are posting. Let us bore you with them when we see you. *w*
|We got to watch them prepare this plane for a flight, including watching the fueling. It was so cool to see it taxi down the grass runway and take off.|
|The old girl sure smokes when she is started.|
|A tower that they bought in the UK, tore down, labeled and reassembled in Virginia.|
|They actually work on planes and get them ready to fly. Almost everything we saw can be flown.|
|They even have a resident cat that followed us on the tour.|
|Original bullet holes in the doors that were put there in WWII|
|This was a short train track to show how they moved the bombs to the aircraft because they were to heavy.|
|We ended our tour looking at an Enigma machine that was used by the Germans to create coded messages.|
