To armyjunk,

Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your pictures of the Air Force Museum. As someone who has tried to take museum pictures before, I can say they are truly exceptional - sharp with great exposure settings and no people to interfere with the view. Its obvious that you put a lot of work into the project.

I copied them all and now am thinking about visiting the museum again. The last time I went was in 1975. Didn't even have a camera. If I go, I will study your pictures before going so I can learn about some of the great photo angles and composition.

I am also considering cropping them to the 16 by 9 format for HDTV. I might add them to my personal collection and even label each one. You might be interested in how I cropped and labeled my collections from visits to the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola. By researching the museum photo gallery and Wiki, I was able to identify the initial service date of each aircraft. It took awhile but organizing the collection by date resulted in some interesting information - like new prop planes entering service even after the advent of jets. It shed a whole new light on the actual chronological history of Naval Aviation. The site is at http://waynespictures4.shutterfly.com/

Tahnks again for the great pictures.

Wayne

I really enjoy your post of aircraft. Keep up the good work. I was looking for the Widow Maker F104.
When I was in Germany I had a flight in one. The pilot was 32 yrs old.
Two weeks later he crashed into the side of a mountian.

Army --

Great photos! I need to go back to Wright-Patt. Looks like they have added some stuff since I was there last.

I noticed that photo #183 is the same as #182, even though the caption is different. It's definitely not an F-106!

We flew a EB66, the first electronic war fare bird, to the muesum from Shaw AFB in 1968. Listed is an RB66. Is the EB66 still at the muesum?

armyjunk

I am a new member, so not quite sure if this message will get to armyjunk.

I want to let armyjunk know that I think the photos taken at the Air Force, Smithsonian and Naval Museums are great. I do not know how he got such great angle shots of the planes and lighting.

I have been going to the Air Force Museum since before it was moved from Wright-Patterson to its new location and new building. I have visited the Air Force Museum at least 30 times since 1958 and have no where the quality of pictures that you have posted. I last visited the museum back in June. The lighting within the museum is always so dim, so my patures are dark. I have been to the Naval Air Museum and the Smithsonian, but it has been at least 15 years since I have been to the Smithsonian. After seeing your pictures I will have to plan a trip back to the Smithsonian.

I do not what your interest is in aircraft, but if you have not been to the Hill AFB Aerospace Museum near Ogden, Utah or the Pima Musum in Tucson I highly recommend them. They both have over a 100 aircraft from early times up to the present. The planes within the museums are of the same condition as the Air Force & Naval Museums. The aircraft outdoors are weathered.

The Warhawk Museum, The Legacy Aircraft Museum and The Planes of Fame Mueum in Idaho and Utah are small, but have some P-51's, a rare P-63 King Cobra and an assortment of other WWII aircraft.

Within the next two months I plan on visiting the Warner-Robins AFB in Georgia. It looks like they have a nice collection of aircraft.

Thanks again for posting such great aircraft pictures.

Hi Army....

Can you contact me offline at wstrausbaugh@suddenlink.net? I am going to Wright Pat this weekend and want to ask you a few questions about your photos. I also reformatted some of your pictures for my personal collection to 16 X 9 format and would like you to see them. I have them behind a password on my website so don't want to post that info here.

National Museum of the U.S. Air Force Virtual Tour expanded to include Southeast Asia War Gallery

Posted 11/29/2011 Updated 11/29/2011 Email story Print story

by Bryan D. Carnes National Museum of the U.S. Air Force

11/29/2011 - DAYTON, Ohio (AFNS) -- Experience the Southeast Asia War Gallery online on the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force's Virtual Tour, just in time for the 50th anniversary of the first U.S. Air Force campaign during that war.

The gallery is now fully embedded with audio and video hotspots and touch-screen devices located throughout the gallery .

Located at www.nmusafvirtualtour.com, the Southeast Asia War Gallery is now interactive with initial materials available on more than 150 hotspots allowing users to click on an artifact or exhibit and access factsheets, audio-tour podcasts with printable transcripts, videos and an interactive touch-screen display.

"The Air Force's role during the Southeast Asia War is not widely understood," said Jeff Duford, the museum curator. "When complete, this gallery will present our visitors with the rich, multi-faceted story of Air Force service and sacrifice during that long conflict."

Like the gallery at the museum, the Virtual Tour features more than 25 aircraft that participated in the Southeast Asia War, including search and rescue helicopters and Soviet-made MiGs. The space is full of stories of heroic groups such as the River Rats, forward air controllers and Wild Weasels. Other exhibits range from Medal of Honor recipient Airman 1st Class William H. Pitsenbarger to legendary fighter ace Brig. Gen. Robin Olds. The story is explained in 12 major chapters, including themes such as Operation Rolling Thunder, the Tet Offensive, Operation Linebacker and many more.

Museum staff members began renovating the Southeast Asia War Gallery in the fall of 2010 and the renovation will be completed in four phases.

"The renovation of the Southeast Asia War Gallery is a massive, multi-year undertaking by the museum's staff," Duford said. "It includes many new engaging exhibits, dioramas, interactives, aircraft restorations, and hundreds of artifacts."

The museum's Virtual Tour consists of 92 high-definition panoramic nodes. All of the nodes are available online, but not all areas are interactive. In addition to the Southeast Asia War Gallery, visitors can experience the Early Years, World War II, Korean War, Presidential and Research & Development Galleries, the Holocaust Exhibit and Memorial and Air Parks. In the coming months, museum officials plan to complete the Cold War Gallery.

The museum offers online visitors various ways to experience the tour, whether it is downloading podcasts from iTunes or accessing the tour through handheld devices or other mobile technologies. Each node eventually will contain clickable images to the aircraft and artifacts, which will be hyperlinked to factsheets, supplemental information and educational materials.
