Savannah, GA

Most that travel north and south on the eastern seaboard will at one time or another use interstate highway I-95.

These pictures were taken while driving north near Savannah, GA.

It’s a B-47, a very iconic aircraft and not often found on displays like this one out in the open.

USS Midway CVA-41

My pictures of A7 aircraft combat operations from the Midway, 1971.

Load them up and launch them. We could do that every hour and forty-five minutes around the clock.

Tuscaloosa, AL

One time while passing-thru Tuscaloosa, AL we spotted this military display area at the end of a large shopping mall parking lot. We went around the block to an entrance where we could get in and park our rig so we could more closely view the display and take these pictures.

During our full time traveling years we took a lot of pictures of military aircraft at museums and display areas. Davis-Monthan Air Force Base houses a huge military aircraft “bone yard”. Many of the outdated aircraft have been restored and placed on display at various venues around the base. From time to time I’ll post pictures that were taken there. Here are a few to start with.

Jacksonville, FL

Naval Air Station Cecil Field, FL was closed by the BRAC commission. The base was turned-over to the city of Jacksonville, FL and is now known as Cecil Airport.

Cecil Airport has become a haven for military aircraft contractors/manufacturers and government agencies such as US Customs and Homeland Security.

Down at the flight lines and near the tower they have dedicated a small aircraft display area. This F/A-18 is currently displayed there.

San Diego, CA

A number of years ago (1997) the Naval Air Station at Miramar officially became Marine Corp Air Station.

Scurrying around they found some old aircraft to put on display. Here are a couple of them.

DMAFB - Tucson, AZ

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, USN aviation squadrons would move detachments to places like NAS Fallon, NV - NPTR (now NAF) Yuma, AZ - NAS Key West, FL and NAS Roosevelt Roads, PR for gunnery and bombing practice. The C-130 was almost exclusively used to transport maintenance personnel and their equipment to those areas.

Here is a picture of that work horse aircraft on display at DMAFB, Tucson, AZ

NAS Jacksonville, FL

Naval Air Station Jacksonville, FL was, at one time, the home base for the Blue Angle Navy aviation flight demonstration team.

This is a picture of a Blue Angle aircraft currently on display at NAS JAX main gate.

Barksdale AFB

Once we spent a week at the Barksdale AFB FAMCAMP near Bossier City, LA. It rained almost constantly all the time we were there. All of the grassy aircraft display areas were so saturated you just didn't want to get out and walk around. This picture was taken from our truck. The display area was on the road to the RV Park.

Del Rio, TX

While spending a week at the Laughlin AFB FAMCAMP at Del Rio, TX I got these pictures of a couple of display aircraft from different places around the base. The first one was near the entrance to base housing and the 2nd was at the golf course.

Naval Air Station, Jacksonville, FL

There is a very nice aircraft display area aboard NAS, JAX.

This little attack aircraft (A4) had a distinguished naval career. It was the smallest jet attack aircraft to serve on aircraft carriers. It was used by the Naval Flight Demonstration Team (Blue Angles). It was affectionately nick named "the Scooter".

Rapid City, SD

We parked at the Ellsworth AFB for ten days while visiting most of the area attractions. The AFB is actually at Box Elder, SD. At the main entrance area there is a very large outside/inside aircraft museum. They also provide van tours of the base , including the B1 flight line.

Rapid City, SD Ė Box Elder

At the Ellsworth AFB aviation museum, most of the aircraft on display inside the buildings are older restored aircraft. This one, the BT-13, was a WWII trainer called "Valiant".

The first one has a little historical information about Ellsworth AFB at Rapid City, SD.

The second one is a WWII Air Corps Comics postcard. I got a small box full of them one time. I sold most of them on eBay. This one has a little damage so I still have it.

U2

Airplanes can become popular for outstanding design and achievements. This one broke the rules and became popular for getting shot down over Russia.

I took both of these pictures. The 1st picture was taken of a display aircraft at DMAFB, Tucson, AZ. The 2nd picture was taken of a display aircraft at Laughlin, AFB, Del Rio, TX.

Cal,


I enjoy your photos. If you are ever in Oklahoma City, there is the 45th Infantry Division Museum near NE 36th and Martin Luther King Blvd. While most of their displays are of Army artifacts, they do have some aircraft in their outside displays. Inside are lots of firearms dating back to flintlocks and cap and ball weapons.


Here is a link to my Smugmug website where I've posted a bunch of photos taken at the 45th Infantry Museum.

Army Aviation:

When we went to visit the Aviation Museum at Fort Rucker, AL we parked at a KOA in Ozark, AL.

Their Aviation Museum has large inside and outside display areas. Below are pictures taken at each display area.

F-14 Tom Cat

My only tour of duty with the F-14 aircraft was with the Black Aces of VF-41 operating off the USS Nimitz, 1977-1980. My duties there were being the Line Division Chief, Maintenance Control Chief and Flight Deck Maintenance Coordinator.
