Hi, Im going to be going "somewhere" on the 29th of April. I want to go to some sort of Air Museum. Been to the USAF meseum and Pima in AZ. Looks like theres no flight availability to Chino, CA for that museum either. Any other really good ones im missing? any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You can fly into Ontario airport that is 10 from Chino or Orange county airport

The Naval Air Museum, Pensicola Florida is as good as it gets anywhere in the US. Pete

I'm fond of the New England Air Museum located next to Bradley Int'l Airport that serves Hartford, CT and Springfield, MA. They've got an interesting collection that is displayed indoors and outdoors. There is (was?) also a hobby shop located in the area that specializes in out-of-production kits.

There's always NASM in D.C.

If you fly into Ontario, CA that's close enough to Chino to make the drive worth it.

What about out of the USA? Come on up to Ottawa, Canada to the National Aviation Museum, the Canadian War Museum, and a host of other neat stuff!

USAF Museum in Dayton, OH next to Wright-Patterson is terrific, and the new hanger is open. HTH

Kyle, don't forget that there are 2 air museums at the Chino Airport. Yanks and Planes of Fame.

The following are all Southern California locations:

There's a good air museum in Palm Springs. I saw it on the Huel Howser show. I forgot the name.

Also there's one in San Diego.

I think maybe Los Angeles has an air museum, but I'm not sure.

The Van Nuys airport has an air show every year in the Summer. They have military and civilian planes on view and some planes doing flybies, stunts, etc.

There used to be an air show in El Toro too, but I don't know if they have it anymore.

Reuben Fleet center in Sandeeyaygo or EAA museum in Oshkosh b'gosh.
