Site Map

In 2020, the COVID pandemic cancelled most air shows. Some, like Oshkosh, held virtual events. Some aviation museums are starting to reopen slowly. Hopefully people are busy in hangars restoring antique airplanes and readying them for when we can all get out and travel again.

It's no fun to be grounded when you want to fly and explore.

We have had a personal setback too, with some health issues slowing us down.  We don't have the time to check on which venues are still viable and which are things of the past.

So... Post COVID our advice is to check with each air show or museum to see if they are open and operating.  Stay safe.

Think of our site map as a sectional for finding airplanes and airshows.  Every pilot needs a navigational aid.  This is a navigational aid for you as you try to make sense our of site.

We don’t claim to have been to most of the museums in the world…

...or to have found all of the cool airplanes that there are to find….

...but we’re working on finding as many as we can…

...and we want to share them with you.

I have fun writing about things that capture my imagination…

Because of that, you may find that the pages aren’t all that mechanical or scientific or detailed about power plants and things like that. 

We just want to help you get out there and find antique airplanes and fun air shows. 

I’ve tried to group things in a more or less organized fashion… hope you find what you want.  If not… use the search function in the right column and have fun trying to find it!

The Orbis Flying Eye Hospital

This MD-10 flies around the world to teach doctors about eye surgery. 

It's not an antique airplane (though it is nearly obsolete), but a favorite of ours for what they do.
