There is no doubt about it, dresses are essential wear for summer. They are practical and cool in the hot weather, easy to wear and comfortable and most important they are feminine and look great. There are so many different style of dress to choose from for the summer from Maxi dresses to prom dresses, there is a dress to suit any occasion. We review the hottest and coolest styles of dress for summer 08.

My brother W.F "Bill" Higgison was the pilot of this plane in World War II. He past away in 2002, but I was able to visit the plane with him back in the 90's and was very impressed with the complete resturation inside and out. Job Well Done!!!

I am totally surprised by the lack of information on the Flight/Mission Simulators of the past. It seems when they went to the boneyard, so did all of the photos/data on them. I was a simulator tech from 1961 - 1973 working on C-124, KC-97, KC-135, B-52, FB-111A trainers as well as the P-3A Instrument Trainer. The Link C-11 is the only reference I can find to Simulators (other than Microsoft (joke)) on the internet. Anyone got any good links?

I am a volunteer at Travis AFB Museum. I am starting to work on a new desert storm exhibit. I would like to include travis members memories whom served time at this war. Please email me if you would like to volunteer stories.

The museum here is great, and I recommend the visit to everyone passing through. I have wanted to get involved with the museum as a volunteer for a long time, but never took the time to look into it until recently. Now I am the lead volunteer for my section, the 60 MOS Maintenance Qualification Training Program (MQTP), which trains KC-10 and C-5 mechanics. MQTP is the "Crew Chief" for the C-56 Lodestar. Stop by and see it if you can. We are training for the future, while preserving the past.

As a former "Chief of Restoration" (1985-1987) and a volunteer for this museum, I am grateful that it is being recieved so well and for so long. I know personally how hard everyone at museum has worked to make it what it is today. I am sorry that I live so far away now and can no longer visit or participate with the museum. I know one day it will have a fitting and sheltered home for all of it's exhibits so they may endure for generations to come. Go see for your self, it's worth it.

I spent over 18 years at Travis; from 1973 through 1991. I was assigned to the 75thMAS, C-5A squadron as well as the 7thMAS and 86thMAS, which were C-141 units. I even was assigned to the Air Force Museum from 1989 until my retirement in 1991. My boss was LtCol Willis M. Rice. During 1989, there were only 24 aircraft there in the museum and I was assigned as NCOIC of Operations. Being at the museum was the highpoint of my career. Even though I was a Loadmaster on the C-141 and the C-5, and of course, "I saw the world" as they say, my time at the museum was the highlight of my time there at Travis. I watched it grow from the old commisary building until today, and of course, I do not know where it is located now since I havn't been there since my retirement in 1991! Keep up the good work!!!
