Planes of Fame Air Museum
Located at the former site of the Cal Aero Academy, a pilot training ground during World War II, this museum celebrates aviation history in a collection of more than 100 restored historical aircraft. Some 30 planes are in flying condition, and restoration of more recent acquisitions is ongoing. Outside the museum, visitors may climb through a B-17 "Flying Fortress" used in filming the 1960s television series "Twelve O'Clock High." Hangar 2 features a large collection of Japanese warplanes, including the only known Mitsubishi Zero in flying condition. A highlight of the adjacent Fighter Jets Museum is an ME-109G developed in Germany during World War II as the first combat jet fighter.
