National Museum of the US Air Force NOVA WBCCI Buddy Rally

Please join NOVA as we travel to The National Museum of the US Air Force! This fall we will camping together very near the museum. As part of the rally, we will spend a day enjoying what is probably the finest military aviation museum in the world.

Rally Dates are October 8, 2010 to October 10, 2010

I really encourage you to visit National Museum of the USAF - Home to learn of all the exciting things this museum has to offer! If you have never been before, let me assure you that you will leave with a new-found respect for our Air Force and everyone associated with it.

At this time we are still attempting to obtain permission to camp on base in the military RV park. They have offered a limited amount of spaces to us. In the event this does not work out, I have a "plan b" campground with plenty of space 30 minutes away from the museum.

Every Friday, the museum offers a special 3 hour "behind the scenes" adult tour of their restoration facilities. Reservations are limited and do sell out. As of today, more than 10 spots remain. Dawn and I will be going on this tour! Visit National Museum of the USAF - Groups & Tours for more info.

This is a WBCCI Buddy Rally sponsored by NOVA. All interested parties are invited to attend! Rally costs are expected to be minimal. The museum is free.

Please sign up on the Rally Calendar. Further details will be announced as developed!

I can't go on this tour, but we did spend a day at the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, FL last November, and I can tell you that if the Ohio one is anything at all like the Naval one, that trip will be a blast.

And since it is Air Force, they probably know as much about airplanes as the Navy does.

Plus this base is in Wright-Patterson AFB OH, which is only a little over an hour to Airstream in Jackson Center!

Could be a nice twofer.

Hi from Ga. . . My teenage son and I visited the Museum at Wright-Pat. It is off the scale ! What a great place. We arrived at opening (10am) and they threw us out at closing.(5pm) The Air Force One area, which is separate from the museum itself, is very cool. I highly recommend this place to all. Regards, Craig

Oooh, this sounds really neat. In case people don't know, WBCCI actually had an International Rally some years back on the grounds at the museum. The museum is quite amazing, and one day really isn't enough to see the entire thing! Unfortunately, we can't make it.

My dad always took us to the museum when we came through the Dayton area. It was an awesome place. Wayyy too much to see. I was privileged to see it through my dad's eyes since he was a WWII Army Airforce lead navigator. He did more than 53 missions and he had lots to tell.
We will be glad to go again. Looking forward to it!

Hi Terry

Long time, no see! We hope that you will be able to make this rally. We would love to catch up with you! We will also be down at the JC Terraport at the end of the month. We are doing an RV4thecure caravan and campout there.

Behind the Scenes tour

Dan,
Larry and I have also signed up for this tour. Maybe they will teach us how they make the aluminum shiny??? LOL!
Others who are considering making this tour should be aware that it goes from noon til 3:15 and it is a walking tour where no seating is available. Handicapped arrangements can apparently be made in advance. Each person must sign up individually for the tour. There is an online form to fill out for the date Oct. 8th.

Airstream Forums - National Museum of the US Air Force NOVA WBCCI Buddy Rally is the direct link to the Rally Sign-up.

Dawn & I are really looking forward to the restoration tour. It will be exciting to see the Memphis Belle (the real one) prior to display.

And yes, we're also hoping to learn how pros polish!

If you find the display for the AGM-65 Maverick, Air-to-Ground, TV guided missile, made by Hughes Aircraft Company's Missile Manufacturing Division in Tucson, Arizona, check the signature centered directly between the two flippers on the aft fuselage, in line with the launcher rails -- That's me!

All of the employees that worked on the Maverick program signed that airframe when it was being prepared for shipment to the museum, around 1975.

It seems we keep missing you folks. Our AS suffered a blown tire in June (Michigan trip) that damaged sheet metal. Jackson Center had it for 6 weeks doing repairs and a small upgrade. We were told you had your AS in for repairs during that time. After the repairs and 5 new tires we headed off to the Penn Wood park where they told us you had been just 2 week earlier. Kind of odd... Please let us know if Rich stops by to visit again this year.

Lou - Tim is graduating Summa Cum Laude in two weeks at the OSU main campus. We are very proud of his efforts and want you to know he is following in your footsteps.

Wow!!!!

Terry, Please convey our congratulations to Tim! That is great! We wish him the best.
We have been having a blast this camping season. We started in March and have been lots of places.
Sorry to hear about your AS damage. We had 4 pine trees fall on our trailer and do damage that Airstream at JC fixed for us.
Our next trip will be to JC on Aug. 31st where will be meeting up with some other folks at the Terraport. NOVA is very informal and you should come out and join us at that camp. We will only be there overnight. Then, our next will be to PennWood for the Fall Colors rally, then we will be at the Wright-Patt AFB rally that Dan is getting together. Hope to see you and Brenda sometime before the end of the season. Let us know where you will be.
