A Plane Sunday

Back in April, I bought tickets to Chino’s Planes of Fame Museum through a Groupon deal. Chris and I enjoyed our visit so much that I went back and bought more tickets so my family and I could go. We finally went today since the tickets were due to expire. We had breakfast at IHOP after hearing mass, then we were off to see some famous planes!

We started off in the Edward Maloney hangar, and made our way through the area. The first air museum I had seen with my family was back in 2011 when we were at Tillamook, OR. Even then, we were really amazed – but the Chino Air Museum is by far so much bigger!

My youngest brother is really interested in aerospace science so he enjoyed being here. He looked forward to checking out the foreign hangar to see the WWII planes that the English and Germans flew.

We spent around two hours today before heading out. The hangars were rather stuffy but being outside in the sun was actually cooler than expected.

On our way home, I found out that there was a different air museum right in the same lot! Maybe we’ll check it out next time!

    Glad to hear that you enjoyed the museum so much that you went again :D. I definitely need to give this place a visit one of these days! My boyfriend loves aviation so I know he’ll appreciate this. It’s always interesting to see some historic pieces up close. They set the path for better innovation in the future!

    Thanks for sharing :D. Hope your family enjoyed the trip as well :).

    Looks awesome! If you ever go to Tucson, I recommend the Pima Air & Space Museum. It’s huge and you can get a tour of the grounds where all the planes are and learn about their history.

    I’ve been to the US a few times and I still haven’t been to IHOP. I definitely need to stop by there next time I’m over 😀

    This museum looks so cool! I love that you can actually go inside the planes – I love when it’s interactive like that.

    I’m glad you and your family enjoyed the museum!
