It was in the section of the museum highlighting rescue activities.The cadets always puffed up with some pride when they encountered it!
Quote from: addo1 on October 06, 2007, 02:36:13 PM Like I said earlier, my squadron went to the Frontiers of Flight museum at Lovefield in Texas. There was many cool aircraft they had there and we had an awesome time! Lots of AF history there.
Quote from: Pujol.j on October 06, 2007, 03:59:37 PMWell that is a shame that the AF at the museum removed the CAP Aircraft in display that is an insult to us that are veterants and also members of CAP,here we are working for the USA as with great deal of dedication to our asigned duties and we are being kicked around by some people that do not reconised our efforts in watever mission we are requested to do. SHAME SHAME SHAME to those in command that order the removal. Sincerly a dedicated member of New Jersey Wing. 2nd Lt Jaime Pujol Sr.
Quote from: SeattleSarge on October 06, 2007, 08:49:18 PMThe two CAP aircraft are hanging in the hangar with the collection of former Air Force One aircraft. You have to take a short bus ride to view the additional collection.http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z281/kb7jcp/PiperCub.jpghttp://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z281/kb7jcp/IM001782.jpgI found them during my visit in May of this year. I don't think displaying our historic aircraft with presidential aircraft is an insult.-SeattleSarge
Quote from: Skyray on October 07, 2007, 04:52:55 PMI was intrigued with the identification of the owners of significant CAP collections of memoribilia:Lt. Col. Bill Breeze (former member collection size unknown)As a former Director of the Valiant Air Command Museum in Titusville, this immediately piqued my interest. I know Bill is up in that area somewhere, and my back channel information is that he was one of those terminations of questionable validity that Florida is so famous for. We should see if he is interested in returning to CAP, and while we are about it, solicit him to place items with the Valiant Air Command. Their focus is mostly WW II and military, but I am relatively sure that they could be persuaded to put up a CAP exhibit with explanations of the part CAP played in WW II.
Quote from: mikeylikey on October 07, 2007, 01:46:19 PMYes, yes......they were displayed over there. However, since then (and I think the info desk people said) they were removed last month.
Quote from: Skyray on October 07, 2007, 05:13:23 PMKach:I have already discussed such an exhibit with Bubba Smith, who you may already know. He is interested. I simply don't have access to enough memorabilia, although I have some wings and stuff from the 60's (mine). My best friend from high school is named Bubba, although not Bubba Smith.I am ancient history up there, and Bubba Smith replaced the Executive Director that was there on my watch. My replacement on the Board was Barry Bobes, whom I have not heard from in years although I get regular updates from his former spouse on the Pineda issue. She was a member of the Southeast Region IG staff. I have no information on either of their membership status at this time. The Valiant Air Command is a fun group. They do an annual WW II theme air show, timed the week before Lakeland to keep ferry costs for the participants down, and when you join, you are automatically promoted to Colonel, an effort to keep the political maneuvers down.
