Quote from: reddfoxx on October 19, 2016, 08:21:14 AMThank you all for the support! It is a work in progress, but I hope it is useful.I am working through your posts. TheChronicOne, I see you found what I did at Altus, and both are on the map. There is an airpark at Tinker, a nice one, also now on there.I knew about the Wildcat at O'Hare but not the Dauntless at Midway. That is next up, thanks.
Quote from: PR19_Kit on October 19, 2016, 04:50:02 AMI've managed to find the entire world map with all the stuff that Reddfoxx has added so far. And Australia and New Zealand are on there OK. Try this :- https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1YglU7IxTI_xdJtGCPwljGoFWn-8It always opens up centered on Dayton OH so you need to hit the '-' key a lot to get anywhere else in the World to come visible.
Quote from: TheChronicOne on October 19, 2016, 09:06:17 AMTalked to mechanic guy again, he told me the strato tanker and the starlifter are in a park of sorts. Only two planes in it but I guess it's still considered an air park. I took the liberty of grabbing a screen of it off google maps.Of course, if one were wanting, they, too, could fire up the ol' google maps and go explore the place yourself. In fact, just out of view are rows of aircraft parked on the tarmac. C-17s I believe! Used to be were the Galaxies sat. Mechanic said most of his career was spent working on the galaxy. (not sure I mentioned that or not.. but it's pretty cool if you ask me.. )EDIT: Reddfoxx was already one step ahead of me! Hey, as a sidenote, mechanic guy mentioned taking pictures of the planes at the airpark, I said that would be helpful. If he remembers and gets them to me, I'll pass them along.

It's a while since I went and looked at it so I can't remember when it was refurbished. At least 10 years though.It is painted in US markings on one side and Australian on the other.For a while I was working opposite it and it was the first thing i saw when I walked out of the box room. I kept getting flashbacks to the time I spent in the nineties watching Tour of Duty...
Quote from: Nick on October 20, 2016, 03:55:37 AMThis could become a very useful reference site!Do you want us to provide details of what aircraft are at each site?I can tell you all about the Ulster Aviation Society where they let you sit in their Sea Hawk and Buccaneer The Irish Air Corps Museum is in the top left hangar north of the runways. In 2009 they had an Avro Anson, Chipmunk, DH Vampire, Fouga Magister, Reims 172, Alouette, Gazelle?, Wright Flyer replica and some sort of flight deck simulator. While there you will probably everything else the Irish Air Corps have in service! The local Garda base their pair of EC135 helos there.North Weald Airfield Museum have no aircraft, just a large collection of memorabilia. Aircraft can be seen flying from the airfield.Royal Engineers Museum in Chatham have a Harrier GR3.
