Castle Airport and Air Museum

A few years ago, Castle AFB in California's central valley was a busy Strategic Air Command facility. Today, it's a decidedly un-busy general aviation airport with a mammouth 12,000-foot runway, a nice FBO, and a superb seven-acre outdoor aviation museum with one of the most extraordinary collections of USAF bomber and fighter aircraft west of Wright-Patterson. If you're hungry, you can get a decent burger at the museum's Flight of Fancy Grill, or buzz over to Harris Ranch (one of the best fly-in restaurants in California) about 15 minutes to the south. Here's all the information you need to plan your fly-in visit, plus a complete list (and some nice photos) of the historic aircraft at the museum.
