    Looks like a pretty decent collection...

    And how about that wind tunnel model! How cool would that be to have something like that?

    Great Photos, thanks for sharin' them!

    Wow, where is that museum (Lakeland?). That Convair Sea Dart and the Locheed XFV is worth the visit. I think the Sea Dart should be inside (Pensacola Naval Air Museum would be a great place for it).

    Yeah... lakeland.

    The wind tunnel model was very cool... I bet HH himself handled it.
    The XFV was quite a suprise... I think it's the only one.
    I was so use to seeing the Sea Dart at the San Diego museum that I bearly noticed it.. but you are right. It's pretty darn rare!

    Again, great shots mate.

    I wonder if the XVF jockey (Skeets somebody or other ?) had a big 'post-it' note on his panel saying 'Caution, land upright on tail !'

    I haven't seen a Sea Dart except in some old videos so it jumped out at me too.

    You should check out the San Diego museum. Theirs a sea Dart on static there. It's a nice little museum. They had a fire a few years back that destroyed some rare birds.

    Awesome.. if you have to choose one make it the Midway! They have a very nice looking Dauntless.
