"National Vigilance Park" Maryland Off The Beaten Path Tip by Tom_Fields
Maryland Off The Beaten Path: 46 reviews and 73 photos
This quiet park, located just off the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, memorializes those who served on US reconnaissance aircraft during the Cold War and the Vietnam War. Flying dangerous missions under adverse conditions, they played a key role in that era. Only recently has any public recognition been given to them.
Here are a C-130A, EA-3B, RU-8 reconnaissance planes--all lovingly restored. Dedicated in 1997, this museum is a must-see for any aviation buff.
Take the Washington-Baltimore Parkway (MD 295) to Highway 32. Take Hwy 32 east to Canine Road. At the Canine Road exit, go left over Hwy 32, and take a left into the large parking lot. Do NOT go straight, unless you are going to visit NSA (the National Security Agency). That's off-limits, except for those on official government business. But the National Vigilance Park is open to all.
