This post comes with apologies for my absence from the blogosphere for a few weeks while I completed a business trip. Thankfully I did get time to stop off and survey a few historic aviation sites and thought you might be interested to see some of the pictures.
My first port of call was the National Park at Moton Field, Tuskegee, Alabama. This is still very much a work in progress and looks as if it will become a fascinating insight into the famous “Tuskegee Airmen” when the restoration and development work is completed. Even so, they have plenty of interesting material already to tell the story and also a nicely restored PT-17 Stearman.
Next I popped into the Air Force Armament Museum at Eglin AFB, Florida. This is a fascinating museum with a surprisingly diverse collection. If you are in the area the museum is well worth a visit to see the many interesting displays.
That’s it for now – I’ll be back blogging the missions in a few days when I’ve fully recovered from the jet-lag…
