Welcome to the one and only live one-man show to entertain and teach the history of the men who built the air arm of this nation. Most of you have never even heard about the Aviation Cadet program, even though you most likely have at least one relative who was involved in this great training program.  Errol D. Severe was a member of Aviation Cadet class 61-E, graduating as a pilot, from Vance AFB in January of 1961.  He went on to fly for Delta Airlines and retired as a 727 Captain in 1985. Captain Severe is one of, if not, the foremost authority on the Flying/Aviation Cadet program in the world.  He wrote the Last of a Breed, the only book on the entire Flying/Aviation Cadet program in what eventually became the United States Air Force.  You will not only be entertained by his whit and knowledge, you will be able to sit in the cockpit of a Vietnam era F-105 F/G Wild Weasel aircraft which actually served in Vietnam during the war. 

You will be allowed to enter the forward section of a Convair T-29 flying classroom used to train our navigators.  This is the only original display of its type anywhere.  When we have groups, we will launch the space shuttle (at least a video of an actually launch) while viewing the actual firing room consoles used at Cape Kennedy.  The sound system will make the launch even more exciting.  We also have an Air National Guard F-16 simulator that you can view.  In our “Plane Pen” we have a complete F-105 F/G, T-34, F-5, F-100 and a T-33 all on display.  As you can see, this is not a dry “museum,” it is an entertainment center which has pleased most all who have been here, men, woman, and children.  We run one show per day at 15:00.  You must make reservations before coming, please call 479-253-5008. You can use the "Book Now" on this website and use your credit card.  We do not take credit cards here at the base and ask that in case something comes up and you cannot make your reservation, you take a moment to call and let us know.

The show will be 1:30-2:00 in length.
The cost of admission is: $15:00 for adults, $7.00 children 6-12, younger, free. Please call now, as we have limited availability for each show. You will  have a ride on the eureka narrow gauge train during normal season.

A new attraction is the "silver wings chapel". We perform a show for groups of 20-100. The show title is "meet the Master" and is one hour long. Please call for reservations and times. vimeo.com/138346047
