I love this place, this plane looks amazing now days. going there is a great chance to talk with the WW2 pilots who hang around down there. I talked with one amazing man who was a test pilot, to get his license he earned $1.25 per week, and $1 of it went on flying, and he still flies the tiger moths today. very inspiring.
