Many museums have an SR-71 on display, but few display it quite like this. As you enter the museum on the second floor balcony this plane is starring you right in the face, supported by three pillars from the first floor. Of all the SR-71s on display, this is probably the easiest one to photograph. Then you walk in to the main hanger and there is a B-17 next to a B-52, behind them is a B-36 Plus a dozen other planes. The only problem is that the planes are so tightly packed in this hanger it's difficult to get a good picture of them.

After the museum I headed towards Omaha and stopped for an early dinner at a DDD restaurant. Joe Tess Place was on an episode called Long Time Legends. He is probably best known for making King Carp into a delicious meal. He failed.

Storms to the North of me, Storms to the West. Tornado warnings all around me. So far I've had sunny and 90. That may change tomorrow. I may head South to avoid the weather.
