“Vintage Aircraft”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The park and trails are well maintained. There is a virtual history of military aviation on display for everyone to see. You can truly get up close and personal with the aircraft that helped our country remain the land of the free.

“Nice Outdoor Air Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Interesting assortment of aircraft, but the 2 SR-71's at the front of the place really caught my eye. It is unusual to see two aircraft plus the engine display all in the same place. The gates were closed when we arrived, but you could still get a good look from the road. Worth seeing.

“Hours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014 via mobile

We were only able to see the planes from the outside of the fence. The hours are Friday- Sunday 11am-4pm. It looked like they had a good collection.

“Unless you are a SR 22 Blackbird fan and never seen/been to an aircraft display/military museum don't waste your time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

This park is outside an USAF testing facility. It is nice set up but very small about a dozen or so planes. I did not interact with the volunteers because my wife and i went when the place was closed but we were able to see everything and get some decent pics. I do not recommend this place unless you will be in Palmdale for 24 hours or more and you are a big military historian or love military aircraft . This park has so much potential. I would not go out of your way to see this place. This is your typical military display outside of a military installation nothing more nothing less. This would be good for children under 15 or Cold War Veterans.
