We close our Pacific Aviation Museum Hangar 37 tour with the Boeing N2S-3 Stearman. It was the most numerous primary trainer in the US armed services during World War II. It was nicknamed “The Yellow Peril” for its high visibility paint. This was a vital first step for an aviation cadet as almost one third “washed out” of the program.  The Pacific Aviation Museum is located on Ford island and open daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm.  Click here for current admission prices or maps & directions.  For history or aviation buffs this is a must see museum.

One important note along with at the Arizona Memorial, U.S.S. Missouri or Bowfin tours you are not allowed to carry bags with you including purses or camera bags (though you can carry your camera in without the bag). They do provide lockers though you have to rent them or make the trip back to your car as I had to do with my camera bag.
