My husband, daughter, son-in-law and I were so very pleased with our choice to use the Military Aviation Museum for the wedding reception. Beginning with our first contact with the events coordinator to the end of the reception, everyone we were in contact with was very kind, attentive and accommodating . The hangar looked beautiful, our guests were so happy and had a fabulous time, and the bride and groomed did not want the evening to end. There was lots of room for guests to move around as the museum was opened to all. I highly recommend any type of event at the Military Aviation Museum.Sent on 02/14/2019

The Military Aviation Museum’s annual Warbirds Over the Beach World War II airshow is right round the corner, with festivities kicking off May 15th. Historical aircraft, which have been meticulously restored to flying condition, will grace the skies of rural Virginia Beach throughout the weekend, but the entertainment doesn’t stop there. A variety of World War II era musicians, singers, and dancers will be on hand at the show as well, performing throughout the weekend.
As the final notes of our National Anthem rang out, the roar of our warplanes taking off down the grass runway filled the air heralding the start of another year’s Flying Proms. Music and eleven of the museum’s warbirds filled the sky with thousands of guests look skyward on a beautiful summer night in rural Virginia Beach. Six aviation themed compositions set the tone as music and warbirds choreographed a ballet across the warm summer’s evening sky. Come join us for this unique festival in the sky.
