A famous World War II squadron called the Mighty Eighth was formed in Savannah in 1942. Within one month, they answered the call to arms and shipped out to the United Kingdom. Flying in Royal Air Force planes, the Mighty Eighth became the largest air force of the period. Exhibits at this museum begin with the prelude to World War II and the rise of Adolf Hitler, and continue through Desert Storm. You can see vintage aircraft, fly a simulated bombing mission with a B-17 crew, test your skills as a waist gunner, and view interviews with courageous World War II vets. The museum also has three theaters, an art gallery, and a 7,000-volume library.
