    When I was in Florida at the beginning of this month, my family stopped at the Eglin AFB Armaments Museum. A very nice, small, museum that had a lot of aircraft and weapons. Here are some photos of the museum displays and exhibits.

    Neat stuff. Do you happen to catch the tail code on that F-111? I'm curious to see the squadron it represents. Looks like a nice collection of aircraft and weapons.

    I do have more photos of the Sabre. I'll also see if I can find any info about the squadron the F-111 served in.
