Up, Up and Away
Farmingdale is home to the American Airpower Museum. This specialty museum offers visitors a unique perspective on military planes. Take a guided tour or just wander through on your own. There is so much here to amaze you. It is also a slice of history: The hangar here was the site of manufacturing for the P-47 Thunderbolts.
