This blog and the photos are the result of Bob's trips to two air museums -- the MidAtlantic Air Museum (WWII) and the Golden Age Air Museum (WWI). They're both close to his sister Judy's home near Reading.
“The Mid-Atlantic Air Museum (MAAM) is a membership supported museum and aircraft restoration facility located at the regional airport serving Reading, Pennsylvania. The museum . . . collects and actively restores historic war planes and classic airliners as well as rare civilian and military aircraft. Many of the museum's historic aircraft are often seen on the airshow circuit.

According to the editors of Military Vehicle Magazine, the air show is the largest and the best WWIIreenactment in the nation — bar none.” (Wikipedia)

Museum displays include full size operational aircraft and automobiles, as well as displays of artifacts from the Golden Age." http://www.goldenageair.org/museuminfo.htm

the Museum catAccording to the volunteer at the Mid-Atlantic Museum, this up-in-years cat has never been out of main building during his entire life. Considering that the temperature that day was in the upper 90's, that's pretty smart cat.
