2008 Museums: Hiller Aviation Museum

The Hiller Institute Aviation Museum is another nice museum in the Bay Area that is worth visiting !  If you would like a change from military aircraft, this is the place to go.  A good stop for fans of general aviation aircraft.  Above is the Rutan Long EZ.  Here are my pictures:
