The museum is one large building of aircraft, models, and information, and there's also a few cool things outside in the back as well.
|This was in Mythbusters, no?|
|There are many different types of motors on display, if you want to learn about how they work!|
|Dad said this type of mini plane was in one of the older James Bond movies.|
|Gas will give you flight??? I don't even know.|
Like, in the 1920s there were competitions to fly from the Bay to Hawaii! The amount of contestants that wound up "lost at sea" or "crashed on takeoff" is ridiculously high.
Anyway, upstairs in the main hall are many computers where you can run flight sims for an extra $3 on weekends. Back on ground level there's also a window to look into the museum's restoration workshop, but the coolest part awaits out the back.
|Not everyday you can *safely* model in a jet engine.|
|Might be waiting a while for take-off though.|
When you're done in the jet, you can go right up to the San Carlos airport runway and watch the little planes take off and land.
Overall, it's a fun little museum to spend a couple hours at. You can sit in several of the planes and helicopters, and there are interactive simulator games spread throughout the museum. The mannequins, like most mannequins, are pretty creepy though. Haha!
