The best surprises come in really big packages. Even better when the packages are WWI and WWII military aircraft. I had rather low expectations of my visit to the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach, VA. I had done some research and read mixed reviews stating the planes were great but not much else to see. The museum had been on my hit list for sometime but I hadn’t gotten around to it. One reason is the location. The Hampton Roads area runs on the military and Oceana is the biggest Naval Air base in the US. The catch with this museum, it’s in the middle of farm country and not in a downtown VA Beach, Norfolk or Newport News. You basically have drive down to the border of North Carolina to get to it. So, on a sunny Monday morning in October I made my way south. In the end I would be happy I did.
