AAA Editor Notes
Air Force Armament Museum is at 100 Museum Dr., near SR 189 and Eglin Air Force Base's west gate. The museum exhibits 29 aircraft (25 outdoors), including a SR-71 Blackbird spy plane, a Soviet MiG 21 fighter jet and World War II fighters and bombers. Numerous munitions displays include missiles, bombs, rockets and small arms ranging from World War II rifles to the MOAB (Mother Of All Bombs/Massive Ordnance Air Blast), the largest guided conventional air drop weapon. Artifacts focus on the development and fielding of air-to-air and air-to-ground non-nuclear munitions.
A 20-minute film depicts the history of Eglin Air Force Base from 1935 to the present.
