    I am currently in Utah… a beautiful, if hot and somewhat oxygen starved state.



    Paid a visit today to the Hill Airforce Museum



    Hill Aerospace Museum



    an amazing collection of mainly US aircraft…..huge aircraft from ww2 and up to the modern day…truly stunning



    anyway here are a few shots with my only particular slant on what I saw

    If you like air museums, make sure to check out the USAF Air Museum if you are ever in the Dayton area of Ohio. Worth the trip, I guarantee it.

    The Museum of Flight in Seattle is another great aviation museum. I was a member for years. I need to go again, it's been a few years.

    Thanks Chrome

    its often difficult in visiting museums to get away from just documentation and to find something else

    I was pretty happy to get these shots

    Nice photographs; I appreciate the effort to have a non-tradional perspective. Number 1 & 3 particularly resonate with me.
