Aircraft Museums, Shows & Airfields

New images

94th Aero Squadron

A restaurant in College Park, Maryland, with some mock-ups, not real aircraft.
Visited 08 March 2008.

Andrews Air Force Base

Active duty and retired personnel were able to drive near the flight line and photograph the aircraft.
These photos were taken from about 1978 through the 1980s before the Navy side of the field and the Air Force side merged to become Joint Base Andrews in 2009.

Andrews Air Force Base Shows

Andrews Air Force Base shows were always in May.

College Park Aviation Museum

A small collection commemorating the airfield that has been in operation longer than any other United States airfield.

DC Air National Guard

District of Columbia Air National Guard, located at one end of the massive Andrews Air Force Base (today, Joint Base Andrews). I have chosen to place photos taken at the Guard facility in their own separate folder album.

Fort Meade Aircraft Display

They held an open day one year in the early 1980s. I forget when.

Frederick Airshows

Some Frederick airshow photos were taken with an old Sony Mavica camera and are not as large and high quality as earlier slide scans and later digital photos.

MARTD Andrews AFB

Marine Air Reserve Training Detachment (MARTD), Andrews Air Force Base.

Naval Air Facility Washington

Located on the far side of Andrews Air Force Base, the Naval side of the airfield provided escorted visits each Saturday afternoon of transient aircraft on the flight line in the late 1970s/early 1980s. Considered one base today, it is called Joint Base Andrews. These photos were taken between 1979 & 1982, 27 years before the creation of the joint base and are, therefore, in their own separate album.

Patuxent River Naval Air Test Station

Several occasions to photograph aircraft around the base in the 1980s.

Patuxent River Naval Air Test & Evaluation Museum

Near Lexington Park, Maryland.
Visited 17 October 2009.

Smithsonian Aircraft Restoration and Storage Facility

Paul Garber facility in Suitland, MD, usually referred to as Silver Hill, where the aircraft are restored and kept until they can be put on display at either the Udvar-Hazy facility in Virginia or the main Smithsonian museum in Washington, D.C.
First visited in September or October 1979.
