Road Trip: Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio

http://www.flagusa2007.com/diana/wrightpat1.jpg

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is a United States Air Force base located in Greene and Montgomery counties, eight miles northeast of the central business district of Dayton, Ohio. Part of the base is located along the city limits of Riverside and is also adjacent to Fairborn and Beavercreek.

The base is named after the Wright brothers, who used the Huffman Prairie portion of what became Wright-Patterson as their testing ground, and Frank Stuart Patterson, son and nephew of the co-founders of National Cash Register, who was killed on June 19, 1918, in the crash of his Airco DH.4 at Wilbur Wright Field.

Wright-Patterson AFB is the headquarters of the Air Force Materiel Command, one of the major commands of the Air Force. Wright-Patterson AFB is also the location of a major USAF Medical Center, the Air Force Institute of Technology, and the National Museum of the United States Air Force, formerly known as the U.S. Air Force Museum.

With headquarters at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) conducts research, development, test and evaluation, and provides acquisition management services and logistics support necessary to keep Air Force weapon systems ready for war.

AFMC delivers war-winning expeditionary capabilities to the warfighter through development and transition of technology, professional acquisition management, exacting test and evaluation.

It is also the home base of the 445th Airlift Wing of the Air Force Reserve Command, an Air Mobility Command-gained unit which flies the C-5 Galaxy heavy airlifter. Wright-Patterson is also the headquarters of the Aeronautical Systems Center and the Air Force Research Laboratory.

Today, as in the early 1900s, Wright-Patterson is where weapons systems are tested and modified. Missions range from logistics management, research and development, education, flight operations, and many other defense related activities. Wright-Patterson AFB is the home to the Air Force Institute of Technology, an educational institution that supports the Air Force and the Department of Defense.

 It also contains the USAF's high-security National Air & Space Intelligence Center, where in the cold-war era captured Soviet MIGs were brought to what was then known as the Foreign Technology Division for disassembly and testing.

The National Museum of the United States Air Force (formerly the United States Air Force Museum) is the official National Museum of the United States Air Force and is located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, in Riverside just outside of Dayton, Ohio. The NMUSAF is the world's largest and oldest military aviation museum. More than 400 aircraft and missiles are on display, most of them indoors. The museum draws over 1.3 million visitors per year and one of the single most visited tourist attractions in Ohio.

http://www.flagusa2007.com/diana/wrightpat3.jpg

The museum dates back to 1923 when the Engineering Division at Dayton's McCook Field first collected technical artifacts for preservation. In 1927 it moved to then-Wright Field and was housed in a succession of buildings.

In 1954 as the Air Force Museum it was housed in its first permanent facility, Building 89 of the former Patterson Field in Fairborn, which had been an engine overhaul hangar, and many of its aircraft were parked outside and exposed to the weather. It remained there until 1971 when the current facility was first opened. Not including its annex on Wright Field proper, the museum has more than tripled in square footage since its inception in 1971.

Which Way?

December 11, 2012

Asking directions is not my favorite thing to do. I always feel that if I stay at it long enough I’ll eventually find my way. My wife, Martie, on the other hand, is always quick to ask directions and incredulous about my unwillingness to admit that I don’t have a clue about where I’m going. In the end, she is the wiser one. She gets to her destination quickly and without angst while I end up getting lost.

Thinking that we are smart enough to navigate life on our own goes contrary to the warning of Scripture that tells us, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death” (Prov. 16:25). When we are at a fork in the road, we need to stop and consult the ways of the Lord, “for the ways of the Lord are right” (Hos. 14:9).

Life is a directional enterprise. It’s vitally important to know how to successfully direct our lives toward blessed and peaceful relationships, meaningful acts of love and service, a fulfilling experience with God, and a host of other vitally important destinations.

Asking God for directions isn’t just a good idea—it’s critical. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart . . . and He shall direct your paths” (Prov. 3:5-6).

Lord, I surrender my stubborn tendency to do life on
my own terms. Teach me that my “want to’s” lead to
dead-end streets and that Your wisdom will keep me
on the road to all that is good and fruitful. Amen.
Ask God for directions because He knows the way.

Read: Hosea 14

The ways of the Lord are right; the righteous walk in them. —Hosea 14:9
Bible in a Year:
1 Timothy 4-6

I spent 1977 to 1981 at WPAFB. Lots of things happened there in those four years. The tanker wing had an annual event where they took spouses for a ride in a KC135. One of them augured in and it was discovered that one of the wives had the stick. That ended that nonsense. One of my friends got stuck in the US Embassy in Iran for 444 days—thanks to the fool Jimmie Carter. Jimmie Carter tried to allow Dayton to annex the base, thus securing the civilian employees’ salaries for Dayton income tax. fortunately for my civilian compatriots that failed. it was an eventful four years.

The museum has a great collection of USAF and some from our allies in past wars. It is funded by donations, not the government. Please visit and please give a donation as admission is free.

If you stopped 25 people on the street and asked them if they knew of the Air Force Museum at Wright-Pat, approximately one person would even know what you were talking about.

But that one person would tell you that it may be the single greatest museum in the US. If I had my choice to spend a day at Wright-Pat or the Smithsonian Air and Space, I’d take Wright-Pat.

Every Freeper should make the pilgrimage there once in their lifetimes. A stunning display of aviation and military history from the past 100 years.

This weather warning is for AZ Freepers.

This is just in from the National Weather Service:

...The first winter storm of the season will bring valley rain and mountain snow early Friday.

* Impacts

Hazards to motorists due to strong winds and blowing dust Significant snow accumulations on high elevation roadways Widespread freezing temperatures

* Expected Weather Conditions

Gusty winds will develop late Thursday afternoon and Thursday night with southwest winds of 20 to 35 mph gusting to 45 mph. Blowing dust is possible including areas of Interstate 10 between Tucson and Casa Grande.

Showers will spread in from the west Thursday night with initial snow levels near 8000 feet falling to between 4000 and 5000 feet Friday morning. Preliminary storm total snowfall estimates range from 4 to 12 inches above 7000 feet, with heaviest amounts in the mountains of Graham and Greenlee counties. As snow levels bottom out Friday, up to 2 inches of snow is possible in Oracle at 4500 feet.

Clearing Friday night into Saturday morning with widespread freeze to hard freeze conditions across most of the area above 2500 to 3000 feet. Temperatures of 30 to 35 degrees possible in Eastern Pinal and Eastern Pima counties, with 20 to 30 degrees expected in the valleys of Santa Cruz, Cochise, Graham and Greenlee counties.

* Confidence

Confidence is high for the track of the storm through Arizona with high confidence in both the chance of precipitation and snow levels. Still some question about available moisture and thus storm total snow amounts. Current forecast timing may be up to 6 hours too early if the system slows a little, which is possible considering the nature of the storm as it lifts through the area and current computer trends.

I've never made the trek out to WPAFB - will try to do it soon. I well remember going to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum as a teenager in the 60's when it was ensconced in a Quonset Hut adjacent to the Arts and Industries Museum. They had a Jupiter Missile, a Nike, and I can't remember what else outside the building. IIRC, they had a Mercury Capsule inside. Otherwise, not that much inside - although they did have an ME-262. Have been back to the new ASM on the Mall - never to the location near Dulles.

This is where I was stationed in the Navy, before it became SPAWAR it was used to build aircraft and Atlas missiles.
Now it is the main procurement facility for the Navy.
When I was there it was NAVELEX

Lots of history in these pictures.

"If I had my choice to spend a day at Wright-Pat or the Smithsonian Air and Space, I’d take Wright-Pat."

You had better plan on spending more than one day if you really want to take it in, however if you just want to see the exhibits, then you may be able to get to them all in a single day. Just don't plan on reading any of the historical information at each exhibit. it really does take two days (or more) to take it all in.
