The Air Force Armament Museum in Florida exhibits aviation warfare armament (bombs, rockets, missiles), as well as the platforms that are being used to fire resp. drop them. In this report we of course focus on the latter: on the aircraft that the museum displays.
The Musee Aeronautique Ailes Anciennes is in the French city of Toulouse and has over 50 aircraft on display. The planes vary in the shape they are: some are fully restored and painted in original colours, while others seem to have been standing in the outside for over 50 years. Frank visited the “Ancient Wings” Museum early september 2013.
The very first Military Aircraft Spotting Days in Holland were organized on October 20th & 21st , 1969 at Eindhoven AB. At the end of the sixties the growing number of spotters was taking more and more pictures from outside the base , so the authorities chose for a simple solution : invite them all and let them take as many photos as they want to. In later years spotting days became more common . In 1969 Hans took his first colour pictures , which was still relatively expensive at the time. Our Thunderstreaks Album contains more (B&W) pictures of this Base Visit.
