Tillamook Air Museum near the coast in Oregon has a great collection of historic military aircraft which are predominately WW2 themed but they also have some modern jet fighters. Other aircraft include helicopters, gyrocopter’s and civilian aircraft. They have over 30 aircraft in the collection but not all are always on display.
Many of the aircraft still fly including a very rare Japanese WW2 Nakajima Ki-43 Oscar. They also have a Hispano HA-1112 Buchon which is a Spanish version of the German WW2 Messerschmitt Me-109G, but it has a Rolls Royce Merlin engine instead of the Daimler-Benz DB605A – this one was actually used in the 1969 Battle of Britain movie to act as a German fighter (purchased from the Spanish Air Force).
