McMinnville Air Museum

Today we visited the McMinnville air museum and, although I visited only 3 months ago, there was still more than enough material and interesting things to see that I could happily spend another 5 hours there and still not see everything that they have.

Tiffany and I currently have visitors with us for the Thanksgiving holidays, and so there were seven of us that travelled to see the Spruce Goose (www.sprucegoose.org) today. There was a little confusion with waiting for the second vehicle to arrive, my wife claiming that it was because I was "speeding away" from them, the truth being more that they were all talking and not paying attention to directions! We simply got a few coffees and sodas and waited for them to arrive.

Several cell-phone calls later, and a few laughs, we were on our way into the museum. The focal point of the area is the "spruce goose" itself, spanning almost the entire museum in both directions. However, the WWII planes are the area that I spend the most time wandering around.

The photos below are pretty dark, because there was not enough light in the museum and the flash was ineffective at those ranges. I have tried to correct the brightness and contrast levels to make them more visible. Click for larger pictures.
