Eighth Airforce Museum.

Mighty Eighth Air force Museum.
We joined under the family plan.
I will be going back with my camera
and a wide angle lens.
A model of the B-17 is located in the lobby
of the Museum.I don't know what scale it is
but it is large enough to see the detail.

Above is the nose section, still in
restoration. Sorry I did not have my
wide angel lens.

This B-17 restoration is not finished.
The volunteers are a dedicated bunch,
the financial and laborers. Everything
is exact and authentic.


View of the belly gun also the type
of bomb they would drop.

What a great place that would be to explore. I became fascinated with the old B-17's when one came to our local airport. It was open for tours. My husband (he has a private pilot's license) and I love to visit air museums.
