Flight enthusiasts, plane lovers, and inventors alike will enjoy the San Diego Air & Space Museum. The exhibits are fantastic, giving visitors a first-hand look at how flight developed over the ages. Visitors can also get a close look at some of the vehicles that marked milestones on the way to the level and kinds of flight technology that we enjoy today.
The museum features a model of the first ever manned flight vehicle – the hot air balloon created in 1783 by the Montgolfier Brothers. Then see a Spitfire Mk. XVI, a Navy Hellcat, or a Skyhawk Jet. But for a real treat see The DaVinci Experience, where the museum has recreated some of DaVinci’s ‘flying machines’ using his designs. The museum took the care to use the same materials and methods in constructing the machines that were available at the time DaVinci lived.
