"It's My Museum", says Harry Churchwell, a native of Hawkinsville and an author to multiple Civil War books. Harry has spent the last 18 months bedridden, recovering from major health issues. When his wife, Judy, asked him what he wanted to do while recuperating, he said he wanted to build a model airplane. His bride of 49 years ordered his first plane from our gift shop and the rest is history. Harry's bedroom at Summerhill Senior Living Community has become a museum itself, with shelves lining the walls of the many model airplanes he's built. "Each aircraft he constructs must have the exact same details as the ones at the Museum", Judy said.
After almost two years of being bed-bound, he finally felt well enough to leave his room and take his first road trip. With the help of his Activities Director, Brandy, and his wife, his trip led him to the Museum of Aviation. He purchased more models and paint and when he finished, he decided it was time for his second road trip out. This time, they dined at their favorite spot, Fincher's Barbecue, and reminisced about their first date nights together at the joint. Afterwards, they made their trip back to the Museum. This time, he wanted the P-40 Flying Tiger model plane. The smile on his face as he received his aircraft was priceless, and he couldn't wait to get his photo taken in front of General Scott's P-40 on display! Judy said that the joy he has experienced while visiting our grounds truly makes it "his museum". It has brought forth healing and has rejuvenated his soul. #itsmymuseum #museumofaviation

At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, World War I ended. Germany faced imminent invasion and signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside Compiegne, France. The "war to end all wars" left nine million soldiers dead and more than 21 million wounded. The global reaction to the war was mixed with relief, celebration, disbelief and a profound sense of loss. #wwi #armistice #onthisday #battle #museumofaviation

On this day back in 1984, the Museum of Aviation opened their first Museum building to the public! What started as a large open field with one small building has now turned into four large exhibit buildings with over 200,000 square feet of exhibit, aircraft, educational and event space! We are now one of the largest aviation museums in the U.S., the fourth most visited museum in the Department of Defense, have welcomed in over 630,000 visitors this past year alone, and have continually honored our mission to portray the history of Robins Air Force Base as part of the heritage of the United States Air Force, educate and inspire our visitors, and recruit the future workforce. We thank YOU for supporting us and look forward to continuing in our service to Middle Georgia, our nation and the world as YOUR Museum of choice! #35anniversary #museumofaviation #aircraft #aviation #celebration #visitGEORGIA #middlegeorgia

On this day back in 1965, Specialist Sixth Class Lawrence Joel, a medic with the 1st Battalion, 503rd Airborne Infantry, 173rd Airborne Brigade was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Johnson, becoming the first living African-American since the Spanish-American War to receive the nation’s highest award for valor. Suffering from a severe leg wound and a bullet to the lungs, Joel continued to administer aid to his wounded comrades in the Iron Triangle northwest of Saigon. #thisdayinhistory #medalofhonor #lawrencejoel #museumofaviation

Smoky, a Yorkshire Terrier, was a famous war dog who served in WWII. The four pound fluff was found by an American soldier in an abandoned foxhole in the New Guinea jungle. For the next two years, she back-packed through the war and accompanied Corporal William Wynne on combat flights in the Pacific. She was a paratrooper, survived 150 air raids, was credited with 12 combat missions and awarded eight battle stars. Smoky was also a Hollywood star, performing tricks in 42 live-television shows. What a life lived! #smoky #tinyhero #waranimals #wwii #ifanimalscouldtalk #museumofaviation

11/02/2019

The Lockheed AC-130A "Spectre" Gunship first took flight in 1966 and was designed to provide air support to ground troops and military forces. The force of firepower from this aircraft was a force to be reckoned with, packing everything from a 105mm M102 howitzer to small calibre cannons. There were only 47 built to serve throughout the Vietnam War and right up to the War on Terror. The Museum of Aviation is home to one of those mighty 47, it also served in Desert Storm combat operations before retiring. #combat #airplane #VietnamWar #DesertStorm #spectre #museumofaviation

Meet the "Dragon Lady". She is a U-2C spy plane that was designed and built for surveillance missions above 55,000 feet. At altitude, the U-2 flies in a region called "coffin corner". This is dangerous because if the plane is too slow, the jet can stall, and if the plane is too fast, the air over the wings will go supersonic, the aircraft will accelerate, and the wings would fall off! This aircraft is one of the few to have served in the USAF for over 50 years. Little is known regarding the service history of ours on display, except it was assigned to NASA, Moffett Field, Ca. during it's final assignment. If only planes could talk.. #lockheed #aircraft #aviationhistory #nasa #museumofaviation

In honor of Halloween, we want to know...have YOU seen this man?? D.B. Cooper's story is one of aviation's strangest unsolved mysteries. In 1971 an unknown hijacker took control of a Boeing 727, forced the crew to land in Seattle, retrieved $200K in ransom money, and released all the passengers unharmed. He then ordered the pilot to take off and fly low over Mexico, where he parachuted into the depths of mystery. Cooper was never caught. Some say he's sipping cold beverages south of the border. Some say he hangs out with Amelia Earhart, Tupac, Elvis and Bigfoot in an unknown location. What do YOU say?? #dbcooper #unsolvedmysteries #boeing727 #halloween #museumofaviation

On October 30, 1961, the most powerful man-made explosion in history radiated from the Arctic island of Severny, breaking windows up to 560 miles away. It was the Tsar Bomba, a hydrogen bomb created by the USSR, with more than 3,000 times the power of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima and weighing over 60,000 pounds. The explosion was hot enough to induce third degree burns at distances of over 62 miles away. It remains the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated. #tsarbomba #onthisday #ussr #museumofaviation

We've all heard the lyrics "a midnight train to Georgia". What about "a midnight jet ride for a pb&j"? Elvis Presley did it! After midnight in February 1976, the "King of Rock-n-Roll" flew his private jet from Graceland to Denver in one night because he was craving a peanut butter, jelly and bacon sandwich called the "Fools Gold Loaf" at the Colorado Mine Company. Presley had the sandwich delivered to him at the hangar in Denver, where he chowed down with the owners of the restaurant, the pilots, and the cook. Here's the recipe for anyone who wants to recreate the meal and eat like "The King"!

1 loaf of bread
1 jar of peanut butter (yes, the whole jar)
1 jar of jelly (every bit of it)
1 pound of bacon (because everything's better w/bacon)
Several Bottles of Perrier & Champagne to wash it down
