Wings over the Rockies Air and Space Museum

The video below includes everything I found interesting at this museum. It’s one of those places run mostly by volunteers who are passionate about the subject. In other words, the displays varied greatly in quality, there were a lot of unexplained bits and pieces lying around, and many of the exhibits were works in progress. I probably won’t be in a hurry to return, but it was worth one visit.

The museum is housed in a hanger that was once part of Lowry Field. The installation began as an Army Air Force base, then became a U.S. Air Force base. It was used as the Air Force Academy from 1955-1958 when the base in Colorado Springs opened. By 2013, all military use of the site was finished. Much of the base has been replaced by housing. 

I stayed about an hour and a half. Here’s what I saw.
