Plane & Simple

Welcome back from the weekend. I sincerely hope you had a grand time and enjoyed it. After a really busy week, I had an opportunity to get in a little family time and relax a bit, which was much needed. Today we return to the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach. We'll peek into one of the main hangars on the site where repairs and assembly projects were underway but first I want to share with you the spiffy sign they have out front.

As previously mentioned, assembly of refurbished and replicated planes are carried out in the hangar we visit today. The colorful fuselage and wings below are what will be a replica Fokker model of some type.

In addition to the Fokker, there is a classic fighter plane parked in the corner of the next image.

Next we have a shot of the hangar that gives a sense of how large this building is. I should have at least had my 50mm lens with me to take in more of the view but had left it packed away in my vehicle. Better yet, a fisheye, which I don't own just yet, would really have filled the bill.

All visitors must remain behind a restraining line painted around the perimeter. This limited many shots but I was happy for the opportunity nonetheless. :-)

Lastly, a view from the front of the hangar. The plane model in the shot above and below is unknown to me. It seems to have been in for service and likely continues to fly today.

Hope you enjoyed the look inside this hangar.

Have a wonderful day!
