Several years ago I was lucky enough to see the Champlin Museum not only for the great a/c displayed but for the fantastic gun collection ther. What a double thrill that was!
By - wow - one day they ran out a FW-190 for a runup! As a member of an air museum myself I was Ok'd to go out on the ramp and watch - and listen and see that great blue smoke and hear that fantastic radial fire up (I think it was made by BMW no less)--I think I can still hear it.....

I just wanted to send this to you to look at please click on the site this about Digitization it will
Show you how it could be such a tool for your and patrons.
Option: Heritage Microfilm will build host, and maintain a website with all of your images available on the site and you will have the deciding factor on who you want to have access to the site: We can set the site up where access is open to everyone in the general public as long as they are aware of the url, we can set up where access is only authenticated through your IP range, and we can set up the site where access is only granted through a username and password. We have set up a similar site for Deer Park Public library and to visit that site for a better understanding of what we offer please go to: http://deerpark.newspaperarchive.com and use the following User Name and Password:
If you have microfilm of air planes this could be another great tool for them.
If you would like to discuss some option please feel to contact me.

Hello to everyone,
I am also a huge aviation war buff especially during WW2 aviation. I have come across this web sight that do to the fact we are studying in Bus class which is a legal bussiness class the mishaps of the TBD. It greatly saddens me that red tape and military unwillingness to work with historical and m salavage companies to save a piece of history that is bigger than any of us. My heart goes out to Mr D. Champlin, the project TBD salvage team, and B. Mester. I wish I could belong to such a wonderful effort such as you have to save a piece of history not just for one singlke agency but for the world to enjoy.

Personally, I'm angry about it. I understand there are a lot of considerations but when I was in school in Mesa, that was my favorite place in the world, and now somebody sold out and it's too far away to reach. It may have been necessary, but so many museums are closing and consolidating that we're losing significant access to history around the country. I miss it.

in response to John Mottley: your aircraft is a US Navy Grumman F-9F Cougar and is listed on the NMNA @ Pensacola FL. you can determine the former unit that flew it and the color scheme by contacting them. JJP

I grew up in Mesa going to see this awesome collection of aircraft. I even took my avionics class from Hi-tech institute to go see the museum. I was in shock when I found it was gone.

I had the pleasure of seeing this museum about 10 years ago and it was great. It was the best assortment of old and newer fighters I had ever seen. I wished I could have made it back before it was closed. I was wondering if the Japanese plan I saw sitting outside in crates was ever reassembled. If somone has info on this plane please let me know,thanks.

I was deeply saddened by the closing of the Champlin Fighter Museum, undoutedly the best private collection of fighters in the world, (save maybe the Pima Air Museum, but look whose across the street? Hopefully this collection will do justice to the purchasers in Seattle.
