The museum itself is actually remote from
the airport and is a residential neighborhood. Inside are many
fine displays and aircraft.
The F-4, UH-1 and A-7 are all pylon mounted
at the main musuem.
The A-12 and S-2 are many of the aircraft in
an air park next to the Birmingham Airport. It is secured so one
needs to ask the Museum Director to have a museum employee take you into
the air park.
Below are the rest of the aircraft
located in the air park.
In an adjacent lot to the air park this F-84
is being prepared for display.
The TF-102 has a side by side cockpit
arrangement. I had never seen this before.
I believe these helicopters were being
stored temporarily outside due to construction in the main display
The T-33 is an outside display.

- The F-4 is a true Gate Guard as it stand out at the entrance to
the USS Alabama park. There is also an excellent inside museum and
some other aircraft outside waiting on repairs after suffering damage
after Hurricane Katrina. A wall of water came up the bay and
demolished many of the aircraft on display, necessitating repairs to
all. Unfortunately there has not been a lesson learned here by the
museum as some day again another hurricane will again send a wall of
water up the bay and again damage or destroy these national treasures.
