First stop was the Anteater, which wasn't on display last time I was here.

Thanks for thinking of me! Sadly it is a 'C' model. The MAAM P-61 is the one I am waiting for. Sad to see the Owl like that. I wish they would rebuild the wings/engines.

Man, I really want to go back there...

Waldo, IIRC, the wings are still being restored. They are just showing the stuff that they have already done, since the room that's supposed to let people see the WIP stuff isn't done yet (or wasn't atleast when I was there last).

When I lived in Virginia I visited that museum maybe a hundred times, as well as all the other museums in the mall, and I don't think I ever saw everything that there was to see. An incredible experience.

I haven't been down there in a few years but after seeing this, inspires me to go again soon.
