We visited the Neil Armstrong museum last time we took our Safari to Jackson Center for service. Actually a very nice museum for a small town environment...highly recommend a visit to the museum while your AS is at the factory.

Dayton Ohio is well not a destination point for most, but all going in that direction should least hold 1/2 a day for this one. A real treat for all ages.

Roger,

Would you believe that we not only went to the museum, but Wright-Patterson was on our must-do list on our trip.

In 1947, my parents met at Wright after my father, who was a US Army Air Force Captain, returned from flying many of our best birds in Europe and Africa during WWII. Mom worked in the Materials Supply Command, and turned out to be the winner of the "I am gonna marry the handsome Captain game" being contested with all of the other single gals.

Dad flew P-38s, P-51s, P-47s and just to change it up C-47s when the General wanted a pilot that had a reputation for luck in avoiding unwanted wing perforation.

The Museum was and is top notch and anyone going to Jackson Center must go to Dayton to see the best rivited aluminum products ever built, of course, except our Airstreams.

John

I visited JC the day they closed for Christmas break. In hindsight, probably not the best time to go, but it was quite!

Although I had my camera, I neglected to take photos. Of particular interest was the Eupopean models. The triagular tail lamp really is bad. Thank God we don't have those!

I did get to see a unit with hotwater heat. It had fin tube radiation all around the perimeter that was plumbed back to a distribution manifold that would be about under a front dinette.

Tour was OK, but I think we will shoot to go thru again soon to see a "normal" one.

Not only do they not allow cameras inside the plant, they do not allow cell phones with built-in cameras on the tour. They did not "shake me down" before taking the tour but Don, the tour guide, surely would have said something to me if I had pulled the phone out of my pocket and tried to take a picture.

Guess Don should have mentioned that cameras were not allowed!

The tour was interesting. I just would have liked to see more than inventory.

Next time I guess.

If you did not go inside the plant where the workers were building cabinetry, cutting holes in aluminum sheetmetal for doors and windows then he probably would not have said anything. You really need to go back when workers are forming doors in cradles, sealing the plywood floor and riveting window frames in place. It is interesting to see how they move the trailer from area to area by hand with two handlebars riveted to the front window frame.

We fully intend on returning this yr (08) . I guess we missed what U mentioned. We had about 20 or more pple in our tour and as far as I was concerned ,I didnt get close enough to the action.
And DanB, Don did mention in the primilary talk before the tour ,that Taking Pictures Inside the plant was PROHIBITED. I just checked with my wife, she remembers all that stuff.
We did not see the frames come in(upside down)We were rushed away from the cap floor.So we didnt see the shells being moved around. Maybe it was just bad timing.
But we enjoyed it and will go back.
Roger

Since I was the only one on the tour, I wonder if I got to see more than a group of people would see? I even had a chance to enter 5 or 6 trailers to check out the placement of stereo system/changer and the new rear bathroom of one of the shorter (22' or 23') trailers.
