We even got to see the original Howard Hughs Spruce Goose!!! It was spectacular it actually took my breath away because it was so magnificent. The picture doesn’t do it justice.

I also saw a hot air balloon basket and I instantly thought of Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz

And let me tell you I rather liked it! But it wasn’t like the movies it was more like a lunch box!

There was also this really cool play park outside! Everything was shaped like a plane or rocket and me and Lelo climbed to the top of that rocket!

And to think this was a vision of the son of the owner of the museum. Who was a pilot too, but he died sadly at a young age due to an automobile accident. He never got to see his dream come true. But 2 years after his death it did and theres a statue that greets you thats larger than ever that is him. I’m sure he’s there all the time. His metals, pictures and things are there. It’s a great place!
