Messerschmitt Bf 109G-10 at the National Museum of the US Air Force.

it was really difficult picking a representative picture for this post. I didn’t take pictures of the aircraft that were typically a part of my youth, (Spitfire, Hurricane, Beaufighter, De Havilland Mosquito, Northrop P-61C Black Widow — don’t ask.) so it was down to the ME 109 to take the lead spot.

The most sobering moment was realizing that I was standing in front of what was once a live nuclear bomb (now decommissioned of course), of the type used to bring the war in the Pacific to a close.

The most surreal moment was when I did a double-take upon seeing a couple of Chinese guys taking selfies in front of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress and Fat Man atomic bomb.   

As with all my posts, click on any image to see it full screen and kick off a slideshow of all the images.
