I am a retired ADRC with 28 years of service. I first time I saw the museum was in the early '60's. . I was flying as plane captain out NAS Oceana on our C47's.Next door was and old barracks with a few items. In 1970 I was transferred to NAS Whiting. At this time the museum was sending old planes to area squardons and stations for prep. I was in VT 6, we received an SBD and VT 3 and AIMD received a Banjo and a Spad. At the time they asked for vounteers to prep. the planes for the museum. They were allowed to work on the planes after working hours. They were promised there would be an engraved plate with their names and unit number.I have been to the museum many times and have never seen their name????? Also, I couple of years ago, I sent an "E" mail complaiming about having to visit the outside planes on a bus. I have been to many aircraft museums worldwide,but never did I have to view them from a bus.We spent many years maintaining them and also flying on them.We like to see them up close.

Truly one of the great aviation museums in the world, the third of five on my personal list of the best. Great and unique aircraft, many shown with great imagination, and all carefully displayed. My favorite is the PBY Catalina cut-away exhibit.

The TV-2/T-33B 131816 at the NMNA is in fact not this aircraft. It is actually T-33A 58-0480 (or 58-480) marked at 131816. This information is directly from NMNA due to my inquiry.

If there is a webmaster paying attention, this is not an appropriate forum for real estate agents to be hustling their services. Please delete inappropriate posts. Having that bit of rant over with . . . . NMNA is one of my favorite aviation museums. It's even better than NASM, and almost as good as Udvar-Hazy. (I really liked the Garber Facility, but we peons can't get in anymore.) The last time I was at NMNA, I was fascinated by the "cutaway" PBY fuselage. I had never quite appreciated the "boat" part of "flying boat". My father-in-law (the Late CMDR GEJ) actually flew PBYs and PBMs (the latter of which I have never seen). Do any PBMs still exist?

In 2006, I traveled over 3000 miles and a good part of those miles were traveled just to visit this museum. Since then, I have moved to Melbourne, FL and in 2008 I did a similar trip of over 1000 miles. Each of these trips, this museum amazed and enlightened me about aviation. The excitement I felt after and during these visits cannot be explained, except to say this is a world class museum and one no aviation enthusiast can afford to miss. I will definitely return one day soon. You need at least 3 days to see it all. I went home after two days and almost 300 pictures. The exhibits are maintained well beyond anyone's expectations, the food is great and the staff are the best. Thank you all.
