I went there last summer for the Military Vehicle Preservation Association convention .  They too had airplanes in the facility.  South side I think has doors that fold into themselves and slide.  A better part of that whole side opens up for aircraft.

Yup, thanks , now I see, a KC-97.  The C-97 was a transport, the KC-97 was a refueler version with a boom, both were double decked modifications of the B-29.  Flown them all, and thanks for the photos.

history

Prolly I should'a also included the powerplants, the B-29s had Wright 18 cylinder R-3350 engines, then when Boeing further evolved thst design into the C-97s it had Prattt & Whitney 28 cylinder R-4360s.  R-3350s were 2200 HP and the R-4360s (we called it the "corncob" on account of it's 28 cyls, 4 rows of 7 cylinders) were 3500 horses.
