Hmm... it was a good share but as many said that more information would do a great help and I expect more from you in the next post.

I was told that there is some info on Charles Killette here at the Maxwell AirForce Base Museum. He helped the Wright Brothers with their first flight, with an invention of his. Could someone respond. Would like to receive info or pictures. Thank-you.Diane

Just off I65 takes just a few minutes to get to the base and the aircraft on display. All in great condition and look like they could be straight off the manufactures assembly line. Well placed to take pictures apart for the B52 which is too large with trees in and around the aircraft. Worth the effort to stop.

The T-38A (59-1601) on maxwell AFB was witness to the XB-70 Midair On 8 June 1966, Al White and Maj. Carl S. Cross took AV-2 up on a flight to make 12 subsonic airspeed calibration runs and one supersonic test. Afterwards, the XB-70 was scheduled to rendezvous with a contingent of jet aircraft, all powered by General Electric engines, for a public relations photo session. The other aircraft included a Northrop YF-5A (59-4898) flown by GE test pilot John M. Fritz, a Northrop T-38A (59-1601) piloted by USAF Capt. Peter C. Hoag with Col. Joe Cotton in the rear seat, a McDonnell F-4B (Bu.No. 150993) flown by USN Commander Jerome P. Skyrud with E.J. Black in the back, and Lockheed F-104N (N813NA) flown by NASA chief research pilot Joseph A. Walker. A Gates Lear Jet flown by H. Clay Lacy, loaded with photographers, recorded the event.

First off I would like to say the first picture shown for the B-52 at Maxwell air park is actually a C-124, it was submitted by Harold V. Arkenbout,evidently loaded by mistake and it needs to be removed, the last 2 pictures for the B-52 are of the actual aircraft at Maxwell/Gunter Annex, as are all the others on this site. All the aircraft at Maxwell and Gunter annex have been painted in the last few years with very high grade paint, many have had recent clear coat applied. These planes look much better than they did when in service because of the great care and attention to detail for preservation. If you are a true aircraft enthusiast, this park needs to be on your list of must see!!!

Looking for information on instructor badges in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Also seeking photos of individuals wearing instructor badges for those periods. See links to other Air Training Command sites at the follwing:

Maxwell's air park is excellent! At my last visit, the planes were in good shape and the grounds are well maintaned. There was no "museum" - just a great set of warbirds, with adequate info cards. This is inside the base, but I was given a visitors pass to browse and snap to my hearts content. The Gunter annex, across town, is also a fabulous place! It has the C-47 listed above and a wonderful "heritage museum", including tributes to Gunter personnel, restored turrets, dioramas, and a B-52 tail section.
