The "Commemorative Air Force Museum"Used to be called the Confederate Air Force but changed for politically correct reasons......whatever.Based in Midland, Texas (birth place of G.W.Bush, Jr.) they do have attachments in many parts of the US. Their hangar collection was not very impressive but the exhibits and nose art collection was "killer".A sind note, a friend of mine from University of Arizona, in college of architecture, joined the chapter in Phoenix. There they aquired a HE-111 from Spain that sat for who knows how long. Actaully built in Spain in '47. They had it shipped to the US in 2000, restored it, flew it, for a good 2 years. The only HE-111 in the US. then in some unfortunate accident in 2003 over Wyoming it crashed, killing the 2 pilots. Thankfully my friend was not on it at that time as he did not have his pilot license yet.So here are some pice of what I saw.
