Boys and their toys

On Saturday, September 26, my family and I drove less than 15 minutes north of Eagan to the Minnesota Air Guard Museum. After passing through the car search by soldiers armed with M4 guns, we walked around and climbed in and out of vintage airplanes no longer in active military service.

These three guys could have been former pilots. I should have conducted a "Steffe interview." The Minnesota Air Museum currently has 22 aircraft in its collection. One of the larger collections in the upper Midwest, it represents a rather complete arsenal of post WWII jet aircraft.

  1. You're pretty funny. That's not a jet aircraft! And, if I recall correctly, it's from WWII!

    Fly away, Safe Leif! ;-)

  6. I always enjoy seeing the vintage airplanes as well as modern military planes. And, i forgot to answer your question from a few weeks ago but the answer is yes I still have my FFA blue corduroy jacket. Thanks for your comments on my site about the slot canyons and vermillion cliffs and the dam is up today.

  8. I heard you were going to be there. Sorry our paths did not cross. Did you hook up with Mitch while you were there?

    That's a nice shot of the P-51. I love that plane.

  9. hehe - a Steffe interview involves single females. He only tackles groups of middle-aged men if he's desperate!
