    C130

    Here is one of a C130 making one of a series of touch-and-gos. Note the 6-bladed Prop. They often come here for such practice because our runway is quite long (5000+ ft) and we're not as busy as other places with runways of such length. I often get good looks at aircraft landing here as I live in a nearly perfect line with our main local runway some 7 miles out. President Reagan came in here in the 707 Air Force One and I thought he was going to drop on my head.

    Northrop Gamma 2B named Polar Star, from an Antarctic flight in 1935. A rough forced landing on uneven ice caused the dents on the fuselage in front of the wing.

    The custom-built Ryan NYP airplane, Spirit of St Louis, used by Charles Lindbergh to solo across the Atlantic in 1927. It carried 450 gals of fuel, much of it in a tank blocking the forward window. The choice of a single reliable engine (with self-lubricating operation) was believed to reduce the chance of mechanical failure that a multi-engined plane would have.
