At the Virginia Aviation Museum enjoy unlimited opportunities to view 30 historic aircraft, including airworthy Wright Brothers reproduction aircraft – the 1899 kite, 1900, 1901, 1902 gliders and 1903 Flyer. See Capt. Dick Merrill’s 1930s open cockpit mail plane and the Stars and Stripes - the first American scientific research aircraft to fly in Antarctica - used by Virginia’s legendary Adm. Richard E. Byrd. Examine a World War I SPAD VII in mint condition!

Learn which planes earned the nicknames: Rolls Royce, Cadillac and Flying Bathtub. Stroll past exhibits on pioneer aviation, World War II and the Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame.

Enjoy aviation films and lectures in the Benn Theater. If that’s still not enough, how about the incomparable SR-71 Blackbird! That’s right, a real SR-71 is on permanent display at the Virginia Aviation Museum.
