Lone Star Flight Museum Houston, TX
An excellent collection of beautifully restored WWII-era warbirds anchors this newly relocated military destination. Formerly on Galveston Island, the Lone Star Flight Museum moved lock-stock-and-barrel to Houston reopening in 2017 with two 30,000 square foot hangers and 20 top-notch military aircraft and helicopters.
The $38 million facility includes the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame, simulators, cockpits to sit in, touch screens, interactive exhibits that focus on military pilot training in Texas (home to the USAF’s pilot training bases), and more. Among the aircraft are a B-17 Flying Fortress, a B-25 Mitchell, an SBD Dauntless, an F6F Hellcat, an F4-U Corsair, a P-47 Thunderbolt, an AD-1 Skyraider, and more
Many of their aircraft are available for rides. Qualified pilots will take you up the B-17, the B-25, the T-6, the SBD, or one of their WWII trainers. A restaurant is slated to open soon.
