Notes

The Combat Air Museum is located near the south end of Topeka Regional Airport, formerly Forbes AFB and originally Topeka Army Air Field. During your visit you may see our neighbors flying from the airport: Boeing KC-135 Stratotankers of the 190th Air Refueling Wing, Kansas Air National Guard and Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawks of the 1-108th Aviation Regiment, Kansas Army National Guard. You may see a variety of other military aircraft in the pattern, taking advantage of the long runway, light traffic and great barbeque at the fixed base operation Million Air in the terminal building!
