(These pictures are taken with a cheap phone camera.)

A Zeppelin airship gondola used for a while on a Goodyear airship.

A side view of the gondola.

A helicopter.

A Ford touring car.

A Sikorsky seaplane with a glider above in the back.

A DC-3 with a Piper Cub under its wing.

A pair of helicopters with the nose of the Piper cub on the right.

The nose art on a B-29 being rebuilt.

A larger view of the B-29 with a biplane in the background.

An “egg-beater” helicopter next to an F-14(?). The egg-beater configuration involved two rotors moving in opposite directions — carefully timed, of course — which avoids the need for the rotational-countering tail rotor on most helicopters.

A TWO-carrying Cobra military helicopter.

A Grumman Hellcat (a Bearcat? I can never keep them straight) with left wing folded sitting next to a Corsair on the right.

A B-25 “Mitchell” bomber rebuilt by local enthusiasts with a Pratt-Reid training glider hanging above it.

The Chance Vought F4U Corsair with folded right wing, sitting to the left of the Hellcat and under the wing of the B-25.

A P-47 Thunderbolt painted with number 54 and name “Norma” used by a pilot of the Bradley unit. The pilot fell in love with a nurse in the Army named Norma, and they were married during the war.

A Bell Huey helicopter under the wing of a DeHavilland Beaver.

A shot of the outdoor display with the restoration hangar in the background.

The fuselage of this aircraft is shaped like an airfoil and actually provides lift.

A Sikorsky heavy-lift helicopter. The landing gear is hydraulically adjustable, so the helicopter can lift itself high enough to accommodate its load.

A electronic warfare airplane, with radar overhead that allows the plane to see farther over the horizon than ships on the water.

A MIG fighter, is it a MIG-15?

A Coast Guard seaplane, probably a Grumman of some kind.
