A new Pearl Harbor exhibit has opened at the Kissimmee Air Museum at Kissimmee Gateway Airport (ISM) in Florida.
The exhibit traces the rise of air power from the predictions of Billy Mitchell in 1924 that Pearl Harbor would be attacked by the Japanese on a Sunday morning to the actual attack on Dec. 7, 1941. Included in the new displays are never-before-seen photos taken from a Japanese bomber that give visitors to the museum a bird’s eye view of the attack. The new exhibits are developed around actual World War II artifacts and tell the little known stories that swirl around the events of the day, bringing to life the facts that people only read about.
The new editions add to the interactive experience visitors have at the Kissimmee Air Museum where they can witness the restoration of the World War II FW 190 project in the “WWII Fighter Aircraft Restoration Center” or fly in the front cockpit of an authentic World War II fighter trainer.
The Collings Foundations’s F4U Corsair also is on display over the holiday season, museum officials note.
