Historic Wendover Airfield is both a museum and an active airport. The museum consists of two buildings, the old control tower, and the movie plane used in Con Air. You can also drive along the roads outside the museum and look at the remains of the old base.
This was our second visit to Wendover Airfield, maybe I can even get to fly myself on the third visit?
Even though this is a rather small museum, it’s filled with history and some cool artifacts. It’s not crowded either, so you can enjoy it more or less alone.
This was the first time we actually climbed the old control tower. The view from up there was awesome!
I guess it’s time to watch Con Air again, to see if we can recognize the airplane…
Nice little gift shop with various aviation themed gifts, t-shirts, books, and souvenirs.
How much time should you plan to spend here?
You need about an hour, and remember to visit both parts of the museum and the old control tower!
