In answer to the question why the C-133 and other planes at the museum are not listed on this site. We (the AMC Museum) have sent updated listings but they don't always get posted. Aside from the C-133 we have also added the only surviving C-124 "A" model and the first C-9 used by MAC as a Medevac aircraft. We have added a C-130 and sent to other museums the P-51, T-6 and Sopwith Pup.

This is a fine, well run museum. It speaks volumes for the people-volunteers, who are part of this organization. I visit it every time I am in the area. They do a

Regarding George's comment: The KC-97 was not based on the B-29 but the Boeing 337 Stratocruiser.

Was at Dover AFB 61-63 in Public Information and made a nostalgic visit recently on get-away weekend with my wife to some old stomping grounds. Was MATS at the time I was there and the museum allowed me to relive a slice of my past, e.g., riding "Old Shaky" all over the world on assignments. Am currently an instructor at the Defense Information School at Ft. Meade, MD and am putting up a museum on AFN/AFRTS/AFVN/AFTN, etc. etc. (military broadcasting. Picked up some great display/exhibit pointes. Great volunteers also.

I have made three visits to my home base Museum. I recommend it and find it's well worth repeat visits. I worked C133s after I got my first look at a 133 at Dover. I maintained Aircraft Instrumentation Navigation and Autopilot systems. One crew had Fuel Qty. system problems I could not fix on Base. After I tested and calibrated the gages. The Left Seater ask, "Would you fly to France in this aircraft?" I made the mistake of saying Yes. They hijacked me to Newfoundland and then to Chateauroux France looking for Amplifiers. My last flight into Dover was a memorable one. Landed at Dover at 6 am on August 21st 1960 from Kano Nigeria (Belgian Congo Crisis) It was my Mustering out day. I look back and wished I could have made a Career with the AF. I enjoyed every minute of it. But to progress career wise in the AF was terrible back in those years. I eventually retired as a Test Director on Trident Submarines for the Naval Sea System Command. THANK YOU AIR FORCE For Launching my Career to it's ultimate height

Was in Dover a couple of years ago and attended a C-133 re-union. This great machine is missing from your web site. How come? It sits proudly, restored, ready to go..on the museum ramp.

I stationed at Selfridge AFB from 62-66. Spent my time crewing the kc97g's. When I steped on the flight line at Dover and went in the kc97 I felt like I was back at home. I want to thank the guys that are giving there time to help keep these birds in the great shape there in. The old saying, you can take the man out of the airplane, but you can't take the airplane out of the man, really does apply. Thanks again, Great job.

We can't describe how much we enjoyed our visit. The volunteer staff was very knowledgeable. Our two hour visit was far too short to take it all in. We'll be back and allow more time in our schedule. Many thanks to the volunteers and staff.
