2007 Museums: Combat Air Museum

KFOE:  N38 57 1 W09 53 98 (Forbes Field)

The Combat Air Museum is located at Forbes Field, in Topeka, KS.  I had the opportunity to visit it during a recent business trip.  The aircraft were all piled up inside for the winter but I managed to take a few shots anyway.  Here are the pictures of the many fine aircraft I took there:
