Photos from the Stategic Air & Space Command Museum

5 posts in this topic

This place is the most awesome aviation museum I have ever seen, need to go back since it takes just abour an entire day to absorb it all. Its more like a major visual overload. My brain is still trying take it all in. My son to.Even the wife who could care less about anything related to planes.

Still have more photos to upload but need to go through them all first.Was a rather dark place for pictures and many did not turn out.

The bomb bay of the B-36 is AWESOME.

Also found a store right across from the hotel we are staying that sells Indian Motorcycles. This store has the most awesome hand built bikes made.Prices also reflect that status.Average retail price for one of those 400 bikes built per year is over $30,000. Just a dream for me to be able get pictures of them. Store manager said go ahead and show it off. Been a slow year for sales so far.

Nice slide show of the museum!!! I was at the museum 15 years ago when it was over at Offutt AFB. It appears that they have restored, & cleaned up the aircraft which is great to see. They were all outside before exposed to the elements.

Not sure how many years the new Museum has been open, but many of the planes in there were in dire need of dusting like the SR-71 in the entry area. But the way they have them hung, it would take some serious scaffolds or harnesses to clean them off. Was amazing how many bus loads of people were there to. Place was packed for a Monday morning.

I was there shortly after it opened. That was at least 15 years ago. Actually I was going to Offutt TDY when they were moving the planes to the new location. There are a lot more planes in there now as well. The SR71 was the hilight of the tour for me though. I saw it fly once when I was stationed in the Philippines. Once it landed it was in the hanger and heavily guarded very soon after it landed. Thanks for sharing! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
    • Forget adjusting the current tax system, we need to flush it and start over.
    • there might be a point on them look at about the 1:09 mark in the video, looks like something there; but i would be hesitant to buy one until some more info comes out about them
    • Don't forget those lower healthcare premiums for the middle class.
    • I'm not sure its his back that is ailing him now. It certainly may be, but what I have seen is his stride isn't what it used to be. His right leg doesn't seem to have the push it used to. Lou Nanne commented the same thing on Barriero's show yesterday. It certainly could be his back, but he had a knee injury last year that he tried to play through and had a "lower body" earlier this year that some said was the result of blocking a shot. I really don't think playing in the World Cup was a good idea for him. He has missed so many games the last few years only to add a few more on top of it? Not a wise choice. Correct, that is how I understand it. The front end he could be getting something like $13M salary and the backend $5M, but it will all average out over the term (13 years) which results in the cap hit of $7.5M.
    • That must be pretty noisy? The ones at the top probably could be eliminated. You might still consider a ceiling huger fan, I bet you use a generator more than you think you will.
    • That is good to know.   
    • I would go further and say that the connection is a consensus.   It doesn't seem to have been verified by actual chemical analysis but the timing and geographic distribution similarity is pretty convincing.     One interesting thing is that a lot of people ate a lot of sick cows in the UK and some other parts of Europe, but not all that many got vCJD.   Thousands of cows, maybe as many as 400,000, and 177 cases in people as of 2014, with a few more each year.  
    • You can do it yourself with froth packs at Menards. It expensive but at the price you were quoted it would work out but you still need a warm place to do it.
