Good pics.
Nice to see they provide for the comfort of the mechanic.

Zero

Howdy,

Yes, they still have the Zero. NEAT!
Those are veterans sitting in the previous snap shot..not mechanics.

The first Tuesday of every month they have a Coffee Klatch (Coffee and doughnuts) for veterans starting at 9:00AM. The museum opens at 10:00AM and the vets are allowed to spend the day...all free of cost. Photography is easy before the mobs arrive.

This is a must visit if you are in the area.

Also, the Planes of Fame has a huge display of plastic models.

Howdy bloomohio,

The Planes of Fame makes a great effort to keep their aircraft in flying shape.
Off hand I do not remember the Electra 10. Every month though there are other interesting aircraft having maintenance performed there. I have a stack of computer discs loaded with years of pictures but a lousy no library at all system.

Attached are two snap shots of the morning veterans table fun, a sample shot of a Zero model display, and yesterday's hangared spitfire that may be of some interest.
