Saving Naval Aviation History

The Airwing of Moffett Museum, located at NASA Moffett Federal Air Field (Mt. View, CA), is currently restoring many significant aircraft: a P-2V (pictured), an early F-18, an F-104, a Cobra Gunship, a U-2 Dragon Lady, and a P-3A. The restorations [include] the inside also, with period cockpit instruments, tactical equipment, and displays being installed when findable. This photo was taken with a Nikon K100 in the Moffett Hangar Three, which is a piece of Naval aviation history itself.
