Finally made the Strategic Air and Space Museum in Nebraska. Last time I was there was when they were at the AFB thirty some years ago before the new location. Nice Grumman HU-16 Albatross. Someone needs to design this as a FG model and add it to Amphibians. The Navy was there that day but couldn't get their simulator to work.

That's a great shot of the Grumman cmdr. Did you use a tripod and flash? I've had a bugger of a time getting good shots in that hangar. Being as I have the inside knowledge, the flight sims have been a major problem lately. One of them broke its tranny, and the other had a computer meltdown. Doh! Got any more shots??? Huh? Huh Huh!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?

Oh yeah, when were you in town?

We were there on Friday the 28th. I use a Canon Powershot but the environment there is tough to get good shots. Here are a few more.

By the way, what is that retro rocket looking bomb tucked away behind the simulator ride in Hanger A?

It's from an old exhibit from last fall. I'm not entirely sure what it's doing there. Hmmm. I'll have to check on that :o
