(Well, technically it's in Fairborn).
"WRIGHT PATTERSON AFB
CUTTING-EDGE AEROSPACE MONITORING".
I grew up in it's shadow, and have lived all my life as it's neighbor. I
have one of my scanners programmed with all of the frequencies I can find
for it. The most interesting ones are the security and maintenance calls.
I've heard all kinds of interesting com's.
When I still lived right in Dayton proper, in (East Dayton, which is right
very close), I used to see all the aircraft on approach and departure. When
they would have big storms down South, they would evac aircraft to WPAFB and
I would just sit on my deck and watch them fly in, it was great. I saw two
kinds Stealth aircraft at low altitudes, and that was great.
Back in the 80's, they flew in the 747 with the space shuttle hooked to the
top, I put the kids in the car and we drove there to see it. What a sight!
I'll never foregt it.
Over the years I've been online, I have had a lot of people ask me if I
knew if they really had the bodies of Aliens in the hanger 18 out there, and
a lot of wild stuff. It's pretty funny.
But, The Air Force Museum is the coolest place around.
You can go there, and no matter what your age, you feel like a kid.
At one time, WPAFB was the home of the SAC B-52 Flight Wing. they had
B-52's lined up as far as the eye could see.
I used to love driving by there.
Well, I don't know if this post is on topic or not, I took the chance
because it's on the cover of Pop Com.
But if you ever get the chance to go the Air Force Museum, go, it's worth
Have a good weekend everyone.
