Experience the excitement of a bombing mission, learn what it was like to Escape and Evade the enemy, enjoy military discounts, and see how we honor our military at the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force, which offers “one of the world’s most powerful museum experiences.” The Eighth Air Force was activated during World War II at Hunter Army Airfield as part of the Army’s Air Corps.

During World War II, under the leadership of such Generals as Eaker and Jimmy Doolittle, the 8th AF became the greatest air armada in history. By mid-1944, the 8th AF had reached a total strength of more than 200,000 people. The 8th AF has played critical roles in the Korean War, Southeast Asian Conflict, Desert Storm, and more.
