Midway Museum

Today was another relaxing day. As usual it was beautiful outside. I did some reading and talked on the phone. I also took a few pictures. The pictures today are from the museum we have here. It's not much. It's just a room in the hangar where we have a few artifacts, but it's interesting.
This is some general information on the Battle of Midway.
During the cold war in the late 50's and early 60's they flew these "Super Constellation" planes out of Midway as part of an early warning system for missiles.
This is an engine order telegraph and a compass from an unkown ship.
Someone made this model of Midway in 1990. It's around 10 feet long so it's pretty big. It's cool to see how many buildings used to be here, and how few ironwood trees.
