Flight enthusiasts get a big kick out this place, so do history buffs. Here at the Museum of Flight and Aerial Firefighting, you can gaze upon these wonderful flying machines. Marvelous airplanes, restored and retired, and housed just west of the South Big Horn County Airport, outside Greybull, Wyoming.

The Museum of Flight and Aerial Firefighting is home to one of the real workhorses of World War II. There are five PB4Y-2’s here, the heavily-fortified bomber that played a huge role in the Pacific. There are more than a dozen firefighting aircraft, these were used to transmit information in the days before radio. They were also the same aircraft that spotted fires, and dropped retardant from above. It is said that in the early days, the retardant was dumped from empty beer kegs. There are a number of other displays that make up the Museum of Flight and Aerial Firefighting.

It’s a nationally-known collection, a Wonderful assortment of planes used in warfare, and in fighting fires over the many decades since the Wright Brothers. It’s a high-flying historical display at the Museum of Flight and Aerial Firefighting.
