A great aviation resource and preservation initiative! https://www.facebook.com/182289781794428/posts/3271457642877611/?d=n
Dear ESAM: For the shipping costs of $250,000, we could have a NASA Saturn rocket in our back yard. Would that be of interest?
Rehab of our Loach / OH-6 continues. The plan is to restore it to how it looked when it last flew with the NY National Guard. This summer's emphasis was on the interior - new replica seats were built and installed, most surfaces were returned to the original gray color.
**Help Support the Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery Mariners Memorial Campaign** @SSHMarinersGenealogy https://www.facebook.com/SSHMarinersGenealogy/ The Descendants of Sailors’ Snug Harbor Mariners have been reaching out to Historical and Genealogical Societies, Museums, Military Veterans Groups, and Concerned Citizens, to invite them to join a Letters of Support Campaign to support their efforts to gain access to the old Sailors’ Snug Harbor Cemetery on Staten Island, in New York City, to honor their Ancestors and all of the 6,500 Merchant and Naval Mariners interred there (1834-1976), by installing a Memorial Monument (Obelisk) and holding an annual Memorial Service. Some of the Mariners were famous Sea Captains and some sailed on famous Merchant, Coast Guard, and Naval ships dating back to the American Revolution. Many were just average seamen whom sailed and endured for many years on the sea under arduous conditions. The Mariners were from many areas of the United States, Canada, and other countries. Some Mariners were from New York. https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/2244490/sailors-snug-harbor-cemetery Sadly, the Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery is devoid of gravestones or markers, except for 15 remaining gravestones. The Cemetery is closed and not open to the public. The Board of Trustees of Sailors' Snug Harbor have rejected the Descendants' requests to access the SSH Cemetery to honor their Ancestors. https://nypost.com/2018/12/29/caretakers-shoot-down-plans-for-monument-for-fallen-sailors/ The Descendants are collecting Letters of Support to persuade the Trustees of Sailors’ Snug Harbor to change their decision. You can help support the Descendants by writing a Letter of Support using the Support Letter Writing Instructions at the following link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1sZv5VFLNWw0HA-pW2i33RhbgVFQ6oExx Sailors’ Snug Harbor has a very interesting history. It was one of the first large scale retirement facilities in the United States and the first established for Merchant Mariners. It was founded by the Randall family whom were New York City Merchant Sea Captains and Privateers during the French Indian War and Patriots during the Revolutionary War. Alexander Hamilton was a friend of the Randall family and their Attorney. He helped draft the Robert Richard Randall Will in 1801 to create the SSH Trust which funded the SSH Retirement Home. During its 140+ years of operation (1833-1976) approximately 16,000 Mariners resided there. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sailors%27_Snug_Harbor
Field Trips here are wonderful. Great program. Kids loved it and learned so much. Very hands on!
Guys, I am bumping your GFM for the Credible Sport aircraft on the anniversary of Operation EAGLE CLAW. I so want to get the word out for you to help save that bird. I also recommend contacting organizations like the Air Commando Association, Special Forces Association and the Ranger Association to see if they can help get the word out.
Empire State Aerosciences Museum - I just saw this guy at Albany International. Any idea what he may be doing here?

Folks, at your earliest, can you tell us your plans for the restoration of the YMC-130? What would be of interest is a time line for the restoration, to what state do you plan on restoring the bird to, what colors do you plan on painting her and do you plan on adding simulated rocket bodies to the display? I am also sure people would love to know how they could donate to help in both monies and time. Do you need any background info on the airplane or program? Thank you in advance! CL
