Unique German WW II Hangar and Aircraft
The Fighter Factory has a new addition - a unique and authentic WW II German Hangar!

This hangar was FOUND in Germany and was used in WW II. It has battle damage on it and even has graffiti from a Polish forced laborer who wrote his name upon it during the war!

Interestingly, it houses multiple German aircraft, including two FW-190's (real), a JU-52, and multiple other authentic warbirds - you won't see anything like this anywhere else! BTW, they also have a ME-262...a German Jet Fighter! Very rare.

It is all part of the admission price of about $12-$15, well worth it.

I flew in with a PPR and so can you. Call ahead and seek permission - it is easy and well worth it as the field is nearly a mile long and 300 wide or so. No fuel or services, so be sure you can depart ok. It is a turf field, so be aware, but at the same time, very EASY to land here. Use 122.9 as the CTAF...there is often warbird traffic in the pattern on weekends.

Plenty of nearby airports - I used CPK as my airport after this one to get fuel - worked fine.

There is only a vending machine here, so bring your lunch and enjoy a picnic on the ramp. One thing I will say about this great museum...you have almost total access to the planes and can walk right up to them. In some places, there are SO MANY you can not walk around them, but it is pretty neat overall! I love it here.
