The airplanes were beautiful and very well restored. I was surprised to see the SR71 in the building. It was also great to see the F14 Tomcat. I was in the navy and my best man was a Jolly Roger from VF84.

The history of the planes and other types of flying equipment was extremely interesting. When we went to the second building one of the gentleman talked with us about a few of the pieces they were working on. Very impressing!
