This place has it all... history, pop culture, and more. Be sure to check the schedule of events to see if a fly-in or big festival is happening while you're in town. One of the only things to do in Wendover other than gamble. Con-Air was filmed here and you can even go see the "Jail Bird" airplane. Fantastic place!

A part of our American history is dying here...unless it is saved. This is where the ENOLA GAY which dropped the bomb on Hiroshima and ended WWII flew from....Hundreds of airmen, medics and their families were part of a huge community here and now it's like a ghost town. I hope it gets saved.

Been here but very antiquated. It's cool from a historical perspective.
