Hi All -

Prior to Covid19 shutting down my latest tour, I'd been back traveling for work in 2020 and that means new or updated galleries!!

Rather than making separate posts for each one, I thought I'd post ALL of them in this thread.

I'd posted the updates previously to my existing photos gallery thread, but it appeared the new posts would fall through the cracks. I've deleted the updates from that post and will post them here.

Here we go:

Starting out with a NEW gallery of the Collings Foundation hangar on the Hudson, MA main property.

While flying in and out of Austin, TX, I documented these airport displays in the terminal and gate buildings.

This gallery deals with Bergstrom AFB history:

This one more generally with TX aircraft - includes some hilarious mislabeling!!

Here is a 2020 update to The Museum of Aviation at Warner Robins AFB, GA.

I was surprised to see the B-52 still sitting in its spot. The P-51H from Chanute is on display, the B-17 from Grissom is being restored and the P-51D that was once on display in the Eagle building is long gone. According to 2 docents in the eagle building it was a replica P-51. They didn't know where it went.

Here is a gallery from the Wildwood Naval Air Station in Cape May, NJ. This was a new museum for me and had a fun tour with my good friend and fellow airplane nut, Clay Sutton. Thanks Clay! Excellent museum and great collection - including an F6F-3 Hellcat that was news to me! Fun!

The museum is housed in the last surviving WWII hangar - of 23 built for the war - on the base. Lots of history here!!

Great update! Both of the Georgia B-17s are looking nice.

Wildwood looks like my kind of place – an old hangar stuffed full of airplanes, models and history.

Thanks for sharing.

The Wildwood Hangar looks a lot like the hangars here in Wendover! Great shots - thank you!

I had a chance to stop by NASM Udvar-Hazy the day before they shut down and grabbed some photos of the 219 Uhu and the restoration area.

Enjoy!
