Jeff,

I'm definitely looking forward to your presentation, especially since we suffered a couple of incidents here in Colorado.  I am pedaling as fast as I can to complete my last presentation, hopefully that will be this evening.

I seem to have missed a listing of starting and ending times on Saturday and Sunday.   And I assume the people at the Wings Over the Rockies can fill us in on exactly wherein their facility to go.   Can anyone fill me in?

Tom,

When you enter through the main doors into the museum there will be a representative to sign you in and point you to the meeting room.

As for times... Craig has scheduled a 'meet and greet' starting at 8:00 on both mornings.  It will also give folks some time to wander around the museum and see things before it's open to the public.

Wish I could be there, hope you are having a great time! Perhaps we could have one here at Edwards. I'd be happy to help make that happen...tours included!

  Its way way early, and both nellis and edwards would be great choices, but i had a thought the other day:  Davis - Monthan.  I am sure many of us have dreamed of seeing the bone yard since we were kids.  I know i have.  Last i heard they still have public tours.

Some of the criteria required for a great Aviation Archaeology conference include:

1. A local host that can provide info on the local area and schedule everything
2. Local accommodations available, reasonably priced, that can handle group 
3. Costs, Most private museums charge fees for using their facilities, catering 
4. Facility that can handle the group, meeting room, projector, etc.
5. Crash site visit. Most people want to visit a crash site, but it must be reasonably nearby, must be able to handle a group of people and must be something interesting to see at the site.
6. Foreigners need to be allowed to attend. We have a whole group of Canadians that want to attend and participate. This is a major conflict if the site is on an active military base.

We are open to suggestions, but please keep these things in mind when making suggestions. Any volunteers?

Wendy and I got back home late last night.
We would also like to thank the organizers and presenters. Educational and interesting, all. My wife (who isn't intersted in this stuff) cannot stop raving about the WWI museum, that was a great place.
Thanks, again!

By the bye....I've been looking into the mystery that the TIGHAR report raised about the legendary Monospar ST-18 that landed on the reef in 1936 (?).  Here is a link to some informed discussion of that remarkable final landing on the coral of Seringapatam Reef, 175 miles off the N.W. coast of Australia - only to be 'swallowed up by the sea"

I just had this OK'd by the Travis AFB Heritage Center/Museum Director and base Historian. 

I'm offering to host the 2014 Aviation Archaeology Conference at the Travis AFB Museum.

- Free use of all the museum facilities, includes meeting room
- I can sponsor any foreign guests on base as long as they have an ID
- Crash site on base (General Travis B-29) plus more sites off base and some good sites not too far away.
- Good accommodations both on base and off. 
- Travis Museum has a great collection of stuff plus the California Aerospace Museum in Sacramento is only an hour away. 
- lots of people in this area are very interested in Aviation Archaeology.
- Great weather in April
 
Lets bring the conference back to the Bay area. 

So what do you all want to do? Travis CA or Nellis NV or back to Colorado? 

DaveT
