This airfield that hosts the museum was an airfield used during the Berlin Airlift in the British zone of Berlin and actually met an older British couple that were stationed at this airfield, pretty awesome.

Looking for a great air museum then the two best in the US are Pima air museum in Arizona an hour or two outside of Tucson and the military plane bone yard is across the street and the commercial airliner boneyard in 30-40 minutes outside of the museum on the highway.

An A-10 warthog getting its wings changed at the Air Force bone yard an hour outside Tucson



The other great airplane museum is the Evergreen space and aviation museum which has the spruce goose inside and a B-17 Flying Fortress you can go inside and that's not including the space building which has a sr-71 blackbird and a titan II missile or a Apollo era rocket.

The spruce goose or the front at least

Both are great. The evergreen one has an indoor waterpark right next to it and all the slides come out of a 747 that perched on the roof.

Flygvapenmuseum, The Swedish Air Force Museum. Lots of stuff you won't see anywhere else and the best museum food I have ever had. They have a display of a DC-3 that was shot down by the Soviets on a recon mission that is really incredible.

While not having the variety of military planes flying by that you get in the States and England i am under the flight path ( sorta) here in Adelaide South Australia . According to ATS-B that plane was about 2 Ks away at the time of shooting .
From wiki . A350-900 . Actually ADS-B says A359 .



The longest operated sector was Qatar Airways' Adelaide-Doha at 13.8 h for 6,120 nautical miles (11,330 km; 7,040 mi)

So i heard and caught a couple of F18s flying over this morning and went over for a look at RAAF Edinburgh . No 18s but i took these anyway .Not the best but they were taken at 600mm in not the best light .



On the way home i spotted this , brings back memories of Woomera in the 80s .

I could have gotten a better shot but i would have been in the entry/gaurd gate . Pretty sure they now have a picture of me now though .

I've been seeing them a lot on the ADS-B website. I caught four F-15s playing low level follow the leader near Mountain Home today, and the firefighting DC-10 parked in Pocatello.

Oh yeah, that one. There was a crash at Henderson today, which is why I asked. A Strikemaster heading up to McChord for a JTAC exercise.

Wasn't due an engine spool up delay was it?

Way too early to say. Pilot rode it in, because they had the seats deactivated, but he got out ok. Front end, forward of the wings burned and was completely destroyed.

The other half was laughing because of what I said when I saw the DC-10. It's not repeatable in public.

We were heading up I-86 when the first Eagle came along. I wasn't sure it was one at first, and she just goes "uhm..." and points at it. The first two made a couple of hard maneuvers around the mountains. The second two were too far to our side to see what they did.
