Tuesday, February 16 — In at 8:57, calm, overcast, recent rain, nothing on ramp. Trip to bank and then to service center to pay for truck work Monday. Clean clothes today, feeling better. Worked long and hard in the Intake Room most of the day. Boxed for storage or moved SEVERAL built models awaiting restoration, several models that just needed to be boxed for storage and a few I REALLY want to restore for display soon. Also sorted another several hundred clippings and scraps. Goal is to make the Intake Room FIT for showing to all visitors who want to see it. Clutter is not my friend. About 5:00 I returned to office and started a three- or four-part Gallery of Flight series about the C-17s, UH-60N and VC-25 which visited Springfield in connection with President Obama’s visit February 10. — http://akmgallery.wordpress.com — Produced a very good PART ONE and shared the news of it on Facebook. Finished that about 8:00 and went home at 8:10. It has been a very productive, positive day out here. Day rating: A
Pictured below are the C-17 and VH-60N that visited Springfield February 7. Many more are shared at the AKM Gallery of Flight.
