This is a very good museum and worth a stop either before or after going to the Kennedy Space Center. The bookstore is excellent. There are a number of aircraft being restored as well. There is an airshow that is held there during the spring every year also.

I managed to visit this museum just prior to leaving the USA for home, it is very interesting with good exhibits and displays, the staff are exceptionally friendly and dedicated, all of the staff I met were unpaid volunteers. I was delighted when I was presented with a piece of the tail section from the C-47 \"TICO BELLE\" which had been signed by the restoration crew present that day, my own piece of history! I wish all the staff the very best with the museum and would encourage anyone in the area to visit as I will certainly do again.

I visited this museum in early March 2003. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the exhibits were very good. I treasure the scrap of Tico Belle I purchased in aid of her restoration. As I was too early for that year\\\'s airshow I made up my mind to come again and hope to attend on 12th March 2006 before flying back to London.

Back to visit last week after 9 years. This time both me and my wife visited and were very impressed with the exhibits....It was great to see the Wildcat sitting there. The last time it was in pieces and the Grumman guys were working on it. This museum has come a long way since my last visit and we both will return.
We also visited Kermit Week's "Fantasy of Flight" and were astounded by the price of admission and the inability to view the aircraft due to crowding and his reluctance to allow visitors to see it all. Yes, the walk thru is great and the interactive B-17 is great. We both loved it...but if anyone is reading this.....spend you money with the Valiant Air Command and get up close and personal with the aircraft. I will not go back to Kermit's place.
Best wishes to all that work so hard to make the VAC Museum a success.

I am building a radio control model of Rosie the Rocketeer Piper L4 with a 108" wingspan. This is a full scale model. I need a good photograph of the interior of the L4, but mainly a top view of the window glass. This is probably not a service you do, however, if there is a cost for the service, I will be glad to pay it. I can receive digital JPeG photos at this email.
I look forward to any help you can provide.
All available photo packs do not focus on the interior of the L4.

I have a pic from 2000 when I visited VAC Museum that I need help identifying. Originally I tagged it as a Lockheed L-60 Conestoga type (they licensed it elsewhere), but I've had some comments saying that isn't what it is, but offering no alternatives. Pic is at http://www.100megspopup.com/photo4phood/webaircraft/vacmal60-1a.html, or go to photo4phood.com (will photo for food) and the VAC museum is located among the other museum sites.

I visited last December. My kids were too young to enjoy the KSC tour. What a surpise and a great museum. Rare russian and german aircraft, as well as several trainers the kids could climb in. I highly reccomend this fine museum. I am an engineer in the Space world, but I think my family had more fun at the aircraft museum.

I was at your air show last year and saw a F-4
Phantom on display. I was in he Marine Corps
and worked on the Phantom and seeing it brought
back some fond memories of over 30 years ago. Is
it still display? My Phantom squadron VMFA-333
,aka Trip-Trey, was one of the few if not the
only USMC F-4 to "splash" a Mig in Vietnam (about
1973+-). Do you still have the F-4 on display?? I'd
like to revisit the old bird again. I had a great time
while at your show and plan on attending again
in the future...Great job. If I lived closer to
you I'd help on the upkeep of the F-4. I was also
an Intruder mechanic in DaNang as well. I saw your A-6
at that same show as well.
Thanks for the memories.
