Wings Over The Rockies

Visited this nice museum yesterday. Located in the surviving hanger at the closed Lowry Air Force Base in Denver, it has an interesting collection of aircraft and missiles, with a B-52 on display outside and a B1A inside. There is a room devoted to the Colorado Air Guard and their distinguished history. The Air Force Academy started at Lowry until their home was built near Colorado Springs. Another room shows that history. At lot of value for $10 if you are in the Denver area.

A warning to veterans who trained at Lowry; the urban "redevelopment" is butt ugly.

I'll add it to the list, I'm 'sure' I'm gonna get stuck at Denver before the year is over...
