Aviation to Visit in Florida

Post by Rampage 3 » Sun Oct 27, 2013 12:54 pm

Hi all
Taking a family holiday to Florida next year including Orlando, Key West and Miami. Is there any freindly bases to visit or decent museums in the area?

Thanks

Many moons ago (mid 90's)I went to the Valiant Air Command Museum at Titusville, can't remember much about it apart from chatting to a USAF B-17 Gunner who was stationed near Norwich.

It depends upon what you want to see, Titusville is very good as is the Museum at Tamiami, Polk City is closed which is a shame, take at look at its website to check when it opens. There is a facility for the Collins Foundation at New Smynra Beach, who are very friendly and then there is Lakeland. Don't forget Kissamee, for the museum and the P 51s again very friendly, did these in 2013

Hope this helps
