Last weekend, Michael and Chris took one of their firsts guy trips together. They went to Warner Robins, Ga to the Aviation Museum. It was supposed to be a field trip to go along with our Time Machine studies but I was sick and sent them off happily. I will let Chris take over from here and give descriptions for the pictures. Enjoy!

Pics from the Museum of Aviation
The first aircraft you see when you arrive, the Boeing B-1 Lancer. It’s a long range bomber from the mid 80’s.
This is the first jet on display when you walk into the south Entrance. It’s an f-15 Eagle.
This is a P-51 Mustang, the fighter plane of World War 2. This one says “Furious Frankie” on the nose.
This is an old MB. Produced by both Willys and as the Ford GPW, it became the known as the Jeep.

This is a Cessna aircraft that was converted during Vietnam as a light attack aircraft.
Another Cessna aircraft used for attack runs on enemy targets.
This was a flight trainer cockpit that was used for the f-14.
Michael standing next to a model of one of the earliest airplanes. It’s not the Wright airplane, because the Wright airplane had skids, not wheels.
This is a larger model of the small one that Michael was next to.
This is a mannequin of one of the astronauts from Skylab, the first long-term space station.
This is an MH-53 helicopter that is used by the Air Force. Note the 6-barrelled GAU-17 Minigun. (Note from Chris, A very comforting sight and sound when under attack and this weapon starts firing from above.)
Michael posing next to the top bubble turret from a B-25 Flying Fortress Bomber. It has two M2 .50 Caliber machine guns.
Michael next to an early jet fighter.
