Combat Air Museum

Recommended Posts

Some pictures from the Combat Air Museum at Forbes Field, Topeka, Kansas.  A collection of aircraft, mostly from the cold war era.  One of the notable displays is a Lockheed EC-121T-LO Warning Star (FAA Reg. Number N4257U).

These pictures were taken in 2006.  The interior has an interesting choice of colors.

Unfortunately, the cockpit was blocked by a semi-translucent material.

Maybe if it were cleaned, it would be clearer.

The next picture is blurry.  It looks like radio equipment or instruments of some type.

Would this be first class or economy?

This looks like an important part of the plane.  Also not the clearest image.
