Southern California is one of the centers of aircraft development in the United States, so it is fitting that this wonderful air history museum is located near the John Wayne Airport in Orange County. Established by Major General William Lyon (USAF), the museum's collection includes fully-restored aircraft, such as a Boeing B-17 "Flying Fortress," Douglas C-47 "Dakota", North American B-25 "Mitchell," Douglas DC-3 and several other aircraft.
The museum also hosts numerous visits from the Wings of Freedom tour, which brings in other restored, functioning historic military and civilian aircraft. If you like old vehicles—military and civilian—you'll also find a great collection here. You can see everything from original 1940s Ford "Jeeps" and military versions of Indian motorcycles to such beauties as a 1929 Duesenberg Model J Phaeton.
