A Fairchild XSM-73 "Bull Goose" is now on display at the Natl Museum of the USAF. www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123181947 The folks there at the museum have really been busy of late getting more and more aircraft/missiles on display. Keep up the good work.

THe main push is to get the aircraft ready for the missile gallery and new building so when it starts to go up, aircraft can be moved. Also to get the B-17's, A-25, and the others done while some of the WWII vets are here to see it. The C-99 waits in the distance. She is going to require everyone to get her back together and restored. If they found Noah's Ark, the NMUSAF restoration team could rebuild it!

Chris, I was just checking out a photo of the missle gallery there at the museum at www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/exhibits/missile/index.asp It looks real cool in there now with the addition of the Minuteman III. Three more missiles yet to be placed in that building.
