I will always have Great memories of Ellsworth. I was there in 1961, and 1962, then went to the Goose. I was married at the Chapel at Ellsworth and my Son and Daughter were born at the Hospital there. One sad memory was when the KC-135 crashed when we were TDY to Fairchild AFB.

One of the best museums I have had the pleasure of touring. Airplanes are in good shape and displayed so that you can view all aspects of the aircraft. Great!

Looking to find anyone who remembers Edward C. Wigton, my father, who is deceased. Was stationed at Ellsworth and married mother there (Navy Nurse). I believe he flew B25, B17. Memories are great. I want to keep his alive. Thank you. Christine Thomas

I had my training as Flight Engineer on B17s in Dec. 1944. There were so many B17s there , one would think one B17 could have been saved for their museum. The local people I met were Great!
