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 Fifth 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

Today, the National STEM Academy hosted the 3rd Annual Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) event for local high school students. The event was co-sponsored by the Air Force Reserve Command and the local Society of American Military Engineers. Also in partnership with the event was Spaceport Camden and Mercer University. The students mission was to build a rocket that could land upright from a launching pad!

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

In preparation of "ON THE AIR-A Tribute to Bob Hope & Radio Stars of the 1940's" show tomorrow, here are some interesting facts about Bob Hope's life:
1. Bob won a lot of medals, including the Congressional Gold Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
2. Bob was a Harlem Globetrotter (an honorary member at least).
3. The Brady Bunch & Gilligan's Island. You can thank Bob for that! He hired Sherwood Schwartz to write jokes for him and the skills and creativity Schwartz learned from Bob helped mold his future as the creator behind the two iconic shows.
4. Bob spread Christmas cheer to American troops overseas for 48 Christmases.
5. Tiny Tiger Woods was only two years old when he squared off against Bob in a putting contest on The Mike Douglas Show in 1978.

October 24, 1929: Black Thursday. Panicked sellers traded nearly 13 million shares on the New York Stock Exchange and investors suffered $5 billion in losses. Many investors had borrowed or leveraged heavily to buy stocks, and the crash on Black Thursday wiped them out financially-leading to widespread bank failures. This day started the chain of events that led to the Great Depression, a 10 year economic slump, affecting all industrialized countries in the world. #onthisday #greatdepression #newyorkstockexchange

On October 22, 1955, the Republic F-105 "Thunderchief" took its first flight. This airplane, in particular the F-105D, had close-knit ties with the men and women here at RAFB. The WRALC was the primary management and repair center for the avionics, fire control and communication systems, guns and air launched missiles. WRALC was strategic in developing and maintaining the advanced electronic warfare systems used on the plane as well. The Thunderchief located at the Museum of Aviation stood nuclear alert with the 41st Air Division in Osan AB, South Korea, and flew numerous combat missions. #thunderchief #rafb #wralc #middlegeorgia #visitGEORGIA #museumofaviation

This little piggy went to the market, this little piggy stayed home...These "little" piggies took a Sunday stroll on the Museum of Aviation's grounds! It was noted that mama pig's tail wagged "happily" the entire time and the pair really admired the B-52 airplane. Sadly, mama pig wasn't taking any interviews on her experience and we think it was that she didn't want to become "instaham" famous. #piggy #verypunny #visitGEORGIA #museumofaviation
