If you go, look for the bright orange P-63 kingCobra hanging from the ceiling. They were used to train bomber gunners and were referred to as "Pin ball" airplanes because they had lights that flashed when hit by the frangible bullets the gunners used. The reason you should look for this plane is because my uncle flew it. He is still living and went to the museum a few years back and was astonished to see the very airplane he flew on a daily basis. He was hoping the museum had the flight logs as he would have been all over them, but alas they did not.
