There is a lot of clutter and no clear shots at this location.  This is a case of ten pounds in a five pound bag!

The Empire State Aerosciences Museum is located inside part of the hangar that GE previously used for the development of jet engines.  It also has an outside display of aircraft as shown below.  The morning I was at the museum there was a lot of moisture in the air and it was overcast.  Consequently everything turned out gray. 


Located on the other side of the airport is the home of the 109th Airlift Wing of the NY Air National Guard.  While I was out taking photos this LC-130H from the unit took off.  The 109th is the unit that flies supplies and personnel to the North and South poles on scientific missions.  The aircraft are equipped with skies that can be seen on the aircraft and in the photo below.


This is the first of several pieces the museum has purchased of a Concorde model.  When complete, it will be 100 feet long.




This Supermarine Scimitar is one of only three in existence in the world.


Eden:   American Legion Post 880  AH-1    April 2008  Both the Cobra here in Eden and the one up the road at Hamburg are having issues with birds.  We have not seen that at other locations.


Fairport:   VFW Post 8495  UH-1    April 2008  The first photo of Super Slick has a story to tell.  Also note that the Huey is in Marine markings on one side and Army on the other. 


Hamburg:   VFW Post 1419  A-4, AH-1    April 2008   Both the Cobra here at Hamburg and the one down the road at Eden are having issues with birds.  We have not seen that at other locations.


Lyons:  VFW Post 5092  UH-1    August 2017

Manchester:  American Legion Post 34  F-86    June 2007


Niagara Falls:  Niagara Aerospace Museum  UH-1    July 2007   The museum closed in January of 2008 and the Cobra as of July 2009 is no longer here also.  It is my understanding that the Museum has reopened with about 25% of the displays at the Buffalo Sabres Hockey arena.  The location of the AH-1 is unknown.
