The planes exhibited are an A-25, B-17, B-25, C-47 and a DC-3, again all in flying condition! There are also military vehicles from Germany, Japan and the U.S. plus war era classics from the General's vast collection. There is also a Helm's bakery van parked next to the DC-3 as if it were provisioning the next flight. Check out this fascinating collection at the Lyon Air Museum next time you're near John Wayne Airport and see the rest of the pictures here.
