The Palm Spings Air Museum

 for an entrance, this is the coolest!

Above were the planes from one hanger, which had the aircraft from the European theater of battle

This display is astonishing

Doesn't the above look nearly like a Pixar airplane, you know, the grin below the nose, the canopy as eyes

  Hidden behind the two wings is a Catalina that's getting restored.

Above: Before .. . .. .. . ..

The aircraft's engine had died during takeoff from the U.S.S. Sable, and the plane rolled off the bow of the ship and into the water. Amazingly, the pilot, Ensign William Forbes, survived.

for National Geographic's coverage of this Wildcat from Lake Michigan;

Below: After being pulled out of Lake Michigan where it had been since a WW2 training flight went wrong it's been restored.
