A Gem of a Local Museum
A Gem of a Military Museum
I’ve just hit send on the manuscript of Haunting Miss Fenwick for line editing, yay!
However, fine-tuning and polishing that story gave me little time for preparing a blog post. So, following up on last week’s post about a hero of D-Day, I’m sharing a few pictures of our Father’s Day visit to the Lyon Air Museum.
This small museum is housed in a hangar next to John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, and features historical aircraft and vehicles. A few years ago, I attended an event there with my sister, but this was the first time my husband and kids have visited. Since he’s an Air Force Veteran, it was a good choice. It was also a good way to remember my late father, who served in the Army Air Corp in World War II.
Planes and Vehicles
My daughter was impressed by the polished shine on this B-25. For my husband, it brought back stories told by an old friend. During World War II, his friend served as the gunner in the front of a plane like this. If you look closely, you’ll see three guns here.
I believe this is Douglas A-26. My grandson liked it.
This is a German tracked motorcycle. The museum has several motorcycles and vehicles, not all of them military vehicles.
And here’s our little guy. Admission is free for children under five, and there were several of them running around with their moms and dads in pursuit.
If you’re in the Orange County area and you enjoy historical aircraft, this museum is worth a visit!
