Fantasy of Flight is an aviation-related attraction in Polk City, Florida, that takes visitors back to the pioneering days of early flight, World War I, World War II and beyond. The attraction houses the world's largest private aircraft collection on display. On April 6, 2014, the attraction was closed to the public, and later re-opened as a scaled-down museum while the rest of the facility is upgraded.

The collection includes airworthy reproductions of the 1909 Herring-Curtiss Pusher and 1911 Curtiss Pusher Model D as well as many planes from World War I.
