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.

One Stretch

December 3, 2013

Read: 1 John 2:24–3:3

Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! —1 John 3:1
Bible in a Year:
Ezekiel 45-46; 1 John 2

For years, Sarah had low-back pain that continued to worsen. Her doctor sent her for physical therapy, and she was given 25 stretches to do every day. The pain lessened but not completely. So the doctor ordered x-rays and sent her to another therapist, who instructed her to discontinue the other therapist’s stretches and do only one stretch a day as needed. Surprisingly, the one simple stretch worked the best.

Sometimes the simplest truths are the best. When asked to summarize in one sentence his whole life’s work in theology, Karl Barth responded: “Jesus loves me!” Some say he added, “This I know, for the Bible tells me so.”

God’s love for us is evident. He gave His Son to rescue us from ourselves. Christ died on the cross, taking our burden of sin. Then He rose again, giving us new life in Him. Amazing love! As John tells us: “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!” (1 John 3:1).

Jesus’ love for us isn’t a Band-Aid or a cure-all for all of life’s problems, of course. But it is the one truth we can always depend on to give purpose to life and peace with God.

I am so glad that our Father in heaven
Tells of His love in the Book He has given;
Wonderful things in the Bible I see—
This is the dearest, that Jesus loves me. —Bliss
The wonder of it all— just to think that Jesus loves me.

Although he’s Navy, my son got his Masters at the Air Force Institute at WPAFB. We visited a couple of times. One of those times we toured the museum. That is simply one of the great museums I ever visited,

Fortunately I live a little over an hour from this and visit frequently. It is so much cooler than the Smithsonian in Washington because you can get right up next to all the aircraft.

The Air Force museum in Dayton is wonderful! Plan on spending 2 days if you intend to see all of it!

I have not been in a while, but they used to have talks given by the guys who actually flew some interesting planes, including some of the test pilots who flew some of the original flying wings, and a guy who flew the Messerschmitt Comet (they have one there) and who was still flying gliders in his 90s. Highly recommended!

Been my privilege to visit W-P and the USAF Museum twice - once in the mid 1980s and again around 1994 when I took in the Dayton Air Show. Saw the B-2 Spirit fly over that day for the 1st (and only for me) time. It was on top of me before I heard a faint whistling overhead. The museum is truly impressive, awe-inspiring, and humbling. The picture of the B-70 Valkyrie outside was the position I saw it in the mid-80s. By 1994 she was inside 1 of the main museum hangars. Of course W-P recently celebrated the Doolittle Raiders final roll call - the perfect place to keep their goblets. Godspeed and well done.

Easy commutes today - light traffic inbound - Left early today for a dental appointment.

Our turkey was quite good this year. I was tied up in errands in the morning - Mrs. MacNessa ended up both making the stuffing and cooking the bird. She did a yeoman job - no surprise to me! We polished off th4e last of it this evening - a few scraps for Sir Winston.

We took John-Man back up to school yesterday - surprisingly light traffic. He graduates Saturday the 14th - big party on the way.

I hope you can get out from under.

I was gifted to work at the base for almost twenty years including some time near Huffman Prairie. As I was going to and from I never failed to look over at the field where the first Master pilot was born. Wilbur taught himself through trial and error. He made the first 360 degree turns here and I suspect he flew into his own prop wash as I did later in my first hour of flight training. He practiced this over and over again in this small portion of the Prairie until he had mastered it, it seems flight training was born here also.

I am blessed to live only 2 miles from the base and have been there many many times. I have still not been able to spend the amount of time to properly take in all the exhibits. It really is a 2-day event if you want to do it right. And don’t forget to take in the presidential exhibit!
