Chennault Aviation and Military Museum

We went to find out more about the Flying Tigers, an American Volunteer Group led by General Chennault that combated the Japanese bombing raids on China during WWII. The General is a Chinese hero! We met Chennault's granddaughter who runs the museum, who is delightful and knowledgeable, and has interesting personal stories. We also had a great volunteer tour guide who answered our questions. The museum is full of WWII artifacts and also includes a life size "talking" mannequin of General Chennault. The museum also includes the history of Selman Air Field and School, a history of Delta Airlines, and artifacts from WWI through current conflicts.
