Ugghhh, lost my text add on to fat finger quit, grrrrrr. Lets try again...

These are from my visit Saturday Sept 28th.
With Boeing and Microsoft and many other contributors, our local Museum of Flight is well worth visiting.

In order of pictures:

SE5a
Sopwith Pup
Nieuport Types 27 and 24bis together
D. Va
D. III
Dr. I
Sopwith Camel?
(P51, Yak or Mig?, P47, Corsair, P38)--just a peek at WWII. Note the corner of the shot next to the P47: there are hundreds of scale models of every single aircraft used by WW2 pilots. Even unsuccessful prototypes are included. I was pleased to see upstairs that they did the same project for WW1 as well. That is where I found the Zep dwarfing all the other little models. It was about 8 feet long. I wish I knew what scale the models were done alike in, but I forget to look.

Following post: Spad VIII, and the Zep.

Note how lovingly detailed and accurate Zuperman's version is next to this pro model of the Zeppelin!

Enjoy!

Great pics Whose! If you look at the ailerons and elevator on the Sopwith Camel it looks as if the pilot is initiating the dreaded corkscrew attack. Must be a M.O.M. ;)

Love the P-47 in the center shot, one of my many favorites, as well as the P-51 in the foreground. I too am partial to WW11 aircraft, have many favorites, Corsair, P-38 to name a couple more lol. Thanks again.

Im a big P47 fan too. 8 .50 calibers. 100 rounds per second on target. Wow.

One of my favorite war pilot interviews was from a P47 pilot who flew close air support in Europe for several years. Very interesting.

Also at the Museum:

Space Shuttle (recently acquired)
SR-71
Concorde
F4 Phantom
Mig 15, 21
A-6
F-14
A-4
Tri-Motor
Air Force One 707 version
Wright Flyer replica
B-17 (i got to sit at every crew station including ball turret)
B-29
DC-3
Zero
F-5e
Countless exhibits on pilots and aviation.
Too many planes, many many more.

My connection to the Museum is close. My family has over 100 years service at Boeing, and my sister just landed a job as fundraising Campaign Manager. This was probably my 20th or so trip. When I worked on seaplanes, a tour guide from the museum asked if he could sit in the Dyno with me while a tested a freshly overhauled radial engine. We became friends, and I offered to tour his guide buddies through the air harbor one weekend. I spent hours talking to the seven guides, several who had flown in ww2. They repaid the favor by getting ten of our mechanics access to the B-17 which was resting (in the hanger it was originally built in) on Boeing property with restricted access. What an experience! Myself and one other mechanic were the only ones who could fit in the ball turret, impossible to imagine the beauty and terror and suffering of that crew member's job.

The second best trip was "Hops and Props," an adult only, night time experience where they have over 60 beer companies pouring samples, with food catering. I have never seen so many people there, it's a miracle nobody gets rowdy and breaks stuff. Maybe they do, im not sure! Theres nothing like standing under the Blackbird drinking your micro brew while you wait in line for your next taste!
