Eagle Hangar: A Tribute to The Greatest Generation

World War II was the most destructive conflict in history, taking the lives of over 10 million Allied servicemen and women, entangling more than 50 countries and costing a staggering $1,150,000,000,000.

The Eagle Hangar is a hall of honor dedicated to the memory of those who served valiantly in that monumental struggle for freedom. The airplanes include examples of Allied fighters, bombers, liaison aircraft, trainers, Army and Navy aircraft, plus examples from Germany and Japan.
