A few weeks ago I went to the Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, CA with my family. I liked it there. We were supposed to go to San Diego but it was pouring down rain. My mom didn’t tell me we were going to the Planes of Fame Museum until we got there. I got so excited when I saw it.
We looked at all of the airplanes. You can pay money to ride in some of their planes. Somebody was taking a ride in one that day. It was a Mustang. We saw it take off. It kicked dust in every body’s face because everybody was standing too close. We also saw a full-size replica of the Wright Brothers’ plane.
When we got to the gift shop my mom said to me “Woah, look at this fight jacket, Matthew.”
But I wanted the navy air force flight suit. I got a 2006 calendar with a lot of the pictures of airplanes I like, including an AirCanada airbus A-321.
The Planes of Fame Museum was so, so, so, cool.
This is my report for my homeschool about the museum.
Planes of Fame Museum
February 13, 2007I went the Planes of Fame Museum in Chino on February tenth. I went with my mom, Bana (my step-dad), and my sister, Sophie. The Planes of Fame Museum was founded in 1957. It has over 150 different airplanes. I wanted to go to the museum because I am in love with airplanes.
I saw many, many, many cool and interesting things there. At the museum, I saw a tri-plane. It looked like the Red Baron’s plane. We saw a full size replica of the Wright Brothers’ plane. They had a model of Amelia Earhart’s plane. I got to go inside a B-17 Bomber. They were used in World War II. The museum is restoring it and fixing it. They had a ton of navy planes. They had slanted tails to go fast. They make the navy planes to have their wings fold to save room on the aircraft carriers. They had a little King Air-looking aircraft that was for passengers like executives. You can pay to take rides in some of their aircraft. It was very, very fun at the Planes of Fame Museum. I think other people should go to the museum.
