Honestly, that's how a lot of Google+ pages look. :)

For those of you who may have missed it yesterday, Interstate 4 will be closed in Lakeland this weekend: westbound closed on Saturday, and eastbound closed on Sunday. 

So if you're coming to Fantasy of Flight, plan on a little extra travel time. See you soon!

Was the Ford Mustang named after a horse or after the legendary P-51 fighter aircraft?

It was another record crowd this weekend! Thank you to all who are coming out to see us before we close to the public.

Remember, we will be reopening a smaller museum attraction late this year (with a smaller price) so you can still see a few of the aircraft while we are working on the next iteration of Fantasy of Flight. But April 6 will be the last day you can see us "as is" so make your plans!

It's been great that so many people have been coming for one last visit before we close to the public on April 6. If you're making plans to do the same, we wanted to let you know that, due to a private event, we will be closed to the public on Thursday, March 20th and will resume normal operating hours Friday, March 21st.

If you're thinking about an event at Fantasy of Flight some time, check out the video!

Don't forget, there are two great opportunities left to see Fantasy of Flight in all it's glory, so mark your calendar:

Thursday, April 3 will be the Sun 'n Fun Splash-In seaplane extravaganza, and then on Saturday, April 5 will be Mustangs & Mustangs showcasing P-51s and Ford Mustangs from all eras. Don't miss either event!

Our company rented the entire facility in March to host an evening party. What a great experience. I am aviation buff so it was especially interesting to me.

I went to Fantasy of Flight a few years ago and found it to be a really great experience. Double so for having a B-26 in the museum, which is a rarity. The B-17 you can walk into is also great. The behind the scenes tour was a lot of fun, it is amazing how many aircraft (and parts) are warehoused and the stories behind that extra stuff. I drove down from The Villages to go see this museum, so if you are in Orlando, it definitely is a must see for even casual aircraft and military history types.

My family (with kids--4 and 8) had about 6 hours before we could check into our hotel and needed to kill some time in Central Florida. Someone suggested that we check out Fantasy of Flight. I was a little skeptical, but gave it a try--and it was great! It is much, much more than just planes--this is a great place for history buffs, gear heads, or anyone who has kids who like big machines. The planes were amazing, but they also they had some really well done exhibits that taught us a lot about American and world history. It was a wonderful alternative to the amusement parks. And, their little restaurant served a pretty decent burger, to boot!

What a gem! My husband, son (3), & I had a blast! The airplanes are amazing. We got to see a P51C Mustang flown by Kremit Weeks. There's an interactive play room for kids, but the adults were having just as much fun. Everything about Fantasy of Flight is so uplifting; really encouraging everyone to follow their dreams! It's a MUST see!

Being an aircraft modeler I found the trips there really fascinating. Always loved vintage aircraft and being able to get close up to these fabulous birds makes you feel like a kid again!

Excellent just doesn't hack it, 'OUTSTANDING' better describes the Fantasy of Flight! Kermit Weeks should be recognized as one of the all time great persons of aviation. I first flew in 1940 when my father paid $5 for a 30 minute flight by a bush pilot in a stunt bi-plane and I was hooked. During WWII I enlisted in the Army Air Corp Cadet program, flew combat in Europe and have been flying as often as possible ever since. I tell you this to prove my authenticity for judging the remarkable lifes work of Mr. Weeks. He will tell you that his collecting is a hobby that got out control but that wouldn't be the half of it. He truly loves aviation and wants the current and future generations to know and understand the men and aircraft developed and flown since the Wright Brothers. Books and computers, pads and cell phones can pass on written history but hands on history of flight is still best presented by the remarkable restoration of the old aircraft.
