I thought I would post these photos I took while in Richmond,Virginia. I was waiting on a plane back to Dallas and I had some time to kill so I stopped in at the airport museum. Sadly I didn't have my good camera with me as I had not expected to run across this little goldmine. The museum director assured me that most of the planes were airworthy except for the ones that were hung from the ceiling. Enjoy. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I didn't have time to ask about that one. There was a guy working on it when I was there and I didn't want to disturb him with the flash. It's definitely
going to be airworthy from the looks of it. The guy was installing the control cables. I'll be back in that neck of the woods this summer and I'll bring
my new Canon EOS with me. I'm planning on going back to the Smithsonian Udvar Hazy Center as well.
