War-movie buffs can step in­side five mil­i­tary air­craft they’ve only seen pic­tured in films, in­clud­ing Tora! Tora! Tora!, Mem­phis Belle, Red Tails, Pearl Har­bor and Apoca­lypse Now, and learn the real sto­ries of th­ese pieces of avi­a­tion his­tory. There’ll be three World War II bombers (Boe­ing B-17 Fly­ing Fortress, Con­sol­i­dated B-24 Lib­er­a­tor and North Amer­i­can B-25 Mitchell), a WWII fighter (North Amer­i­can P-51 Mus­tang) and a Viet­nam-era Huey he­li­copter. Vis­i­tors are in­vited to ex­plore the air­craft in­side and out; those with deep af­fec­tion and even deeper pock­ets can take a 30-minute flight in one.
