The exterior finish of those hangars looks like they're worth a trip. Stunning!

Thumbs up Rockliffe

I flew the DC-9 that is now part of the displays in the Museum many moons ago.

Kind of weird to see an airplane that one flew in a museum...time to retire I guess..

The museum is really worth the visit.

They landed that DC-9 on our 3000ft runway ... blew my mind when I heard that.

And yet, when the F-18 came in, they used arrestor cables!

Great museum indeed ...

I'm 40 and several ships I sailed on with the navy have been mothballed ... which only speaks to the age of our fleet back then :P

Vald, I did not notice any "big N-numbers on you plane in those pictures. Do you have them or did the Canadians look the other way?

I didn't penetrate any ADIZ Dave http://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx....363.6&idno=14 therefore I don't need 12" numbers. When I went to the Bahamas I had large n-numbers made out of duct tape

Mothballing is kind, my ships are scrapped or sunk!

Talking It's a wonderful time of the year at Millville NJ

It's December again where time goes?

Millville Army Air Field Museum is a gem not far from my home base. On a nice Sunday Dec 6th I flew there. On the way checked rookie firefighters at training. The blaze at a factory was just extinguished.



Then conducted some Alaskan training.









Then arrived at Millville Airport KMIV.





Breakfast first. Airport restaurant serves good food and is located in the original WWII building.

Will, a line man from local FBO gave us a ride to the gates. It's actually a very short walk from the restaurant.








Several museum halls were loaded with history and artifacts I didn't expect the museum be that large.





This museum is for the whole day tour not a brief excursion as we planned.













The same type I've seen when I was a kid on the other side of the globe. The same trophy from the same time. Just a different army soldier brought it to a different location.






Quite impressive prop.

Sorry, couldn't resist






The hall with WWII memorabilia we didn't walk. We left it for the next time.







Short walk to parking






and we are ready to roll after a medevac finishes his business.






We still have a lot of daytime left. Winds were calm and ride smooth. We flew northbound for more then one hour to pick up two cases of engine oil. What a lovely day!
