I had the pleasure of going to this museum in November. The volunteers at HARP in Floyd Bennett Field are very help and accomodating as they allowed me to board a few of the aircraft and take pictures. Recent aircraft that were received are the P-2V, S-2 and HU-16. The hangar, while old, is in decent enough shape to house the aircraft and has enough lighting for taking good pictures. This museum is open three days a week (Saturday and two weekdays) and there is no charge. Great job!

I knew this guy throughout his whole Navy career; he was a kiss ass and never did anything substantial. Most of his career he spent as the admirals steward, serving coffee, and KISSING ASS! Pat drank heavy did drugs and was worthless as a sailor. I had to council his on many occasions because of his constant irresponsibility’s. His head was so far up the admirals ass that he made rank every time. He ended up sweeping the hanger deck receiving a dishonorable discharge after 18 years in the Navy, Roosevelt Roads to Pensacola.

Jim Branco was the best supervisor I ever had while in the military. Now only is he now one of the best flight engineers for FedEx, hes also a great personal friend. His tireless dedication to the upkeep of the aircraft at MacAurther is a insperation.
