Olympic Flight Museum, Olympia Airport, Washington

A small, friendly military museum with a good selection of flying aircraft available for passenger flights. On our visit, the Cobra, Avenger, Mustang and T-6 were all in action, and a highlight was the flypast of the Cobra and Mustang in formation - not something you see every day!
