Located just west of the main entrance for Kennedy Space Center, the Valiant Air Command Warbird Museum (VAC) is in its self a hidden gem.

VAC is located on the ground of Space Coast Regional Airport (KTIX) where you can taxi right up to the Warbird Ramp making for a fun flying destination.
As you can guess from the name of the museum, the focus is on warbirds, in fact they only have one non-warbird in their collection, a Stuart 51. The VAC has an impressive collection of US Navy aircraft including an F-14 Tomcat, F-18 Hornet, F-8 Crusader, and A-6 Intruder.
