Congratulations to the Strategic Air and Space Museum in Ashland, NE. I am a retired USAF navigator Bombardier, who was trained in the T-29 1960-61-62 and served with the USAF Active&Reserves from 1961 to 1999.

I have since my retirement in 99 met with various other USAF related museums (National Museum of the USAF, Museum of Aviation, etc...) to push for a T-29 restoration and Navigator and Navigation displays. NMUSAF does not have a T-29 or a Nav-display. However there are good outside-preserved T-29s at Randolph and Hill AFB to name a few. There is also an all but trashed T-29 at Waco Texas, at the Texas Technical School, one in East Little Rock and a weather beaten one at Mercer Field north of Atlanta. I have pictures of the Mercer T-29 on my web site: www.ronbarrett.com

I am the Director of the Airline History Museum at the downtown Kansas City airport, and we fly a Lockheed "Connie" in TWA colors, all historically restored to some dozen air shows a year about the USA. This Connie has a well restored "Nav position" in it. The Airline History Museum also has a good "International Navigator's" display, one of the most comprehensive in the USA. See: www.airlinehistorymuseum.com AHM is the only "airline" history museum in the US and maybe the world.

We should have exchange visits! Call the AHM at 1-800-513-9484. We are open 10AM to 4PM Mon thru Sat and on Sunday 12 noon to 4PM : we are open 7 days a week.

I can be contacted 24/7 at cell 305-797-0745 and at home (816) 732-5802.

Looking forward to coming to visit SAS,,,, Ron Barrett, USAF NavBomb retired, USAF-Navigator Historian

A beautiful restoration. Well done! I flew as the Radio Operator on several models of the T-29. First at Keesler AFB (4/61-8/62), while I was an RO in the 3380th ABG, flying on TC-54D EWO student trainers. We flew Nav Continuation Training flights in the T-29s (4 hours out to Florida bases and/or Texas and 4 hours back) twice a week. Once we completed the EWO school to Mather I ferried VT-29s to Wiesbaden, Germany from Land-Air Corp in Cheyenne. These were replacing the different US embassies' C-47s. I remained on flying status at Andrews AFB while going to language school for six months (1970), and flew on T-29s each month for the required flying times. Then during my last two of four years of a JBUSMC assignment Rio de Janeiro (72-74) was the RO on VT-29D 25-816. I retired from Offutt (2ACCS, Looking Glass)in 1978.

Your pictures are the first T-29 interior scenes I've seen, and they are beautiful. It is great that you've made it available folr education purposes. (I especially like that since I retired after teaching history, geography, and U.S. Government for 22 years after I retired from the AF0. I will visit the museum again soon (last time was 2000).

My congratulations,
