This Hidden Gem Aviation Park Is An Out-Of-This-World Day Trip In Kentucky

Ohio might be known as the Birthplace of Aviation, but that doesn’t mean that Kentucky doesn’t also celebrate the art of flight. Kentucky has its own impressive aviation feats, from Willa Brown Chappell, the first African-American woman to be licensed as a private pilot in the United States, to Esther Mueller Ammerman and Mary Edith Engle, two Bluegrass pilots who served as Women Airforce Service Pilots, to decorated WWII pilot Herschel H. “Herky” Green. In Bowling Green, Aviation Heritage Park is a hidden gem that’s an engaging and immersive history lesson, and it makes for one high-flying day trip in Kentucky!
