    ...And the aircraft are a Grumman A-6 Intruder high and a Lockheed S-3 Viking (an ASW aircraft) low

    This is a picture of VA-72 flying the A-7 Corsair II. The squadron transitioned from the A-4B Skyhawk to the A-7B Corsair II in 1970, the A-7E in 1977, and was stood down on June 30, 1991.

    Today in 1934, Wiley Post reached the stratosphere in his Lockheed Vega "Winnie Mae." The aircraft didn't have a pressurized cabin, so he wore a pressure suit and helmet designed for him by the B.F. Goodrich Company, which is in our collection.

    Late '50's early 60's USMC. The big BAR's and M1 are the ones they use to teach at infantry school. They are fully functional (but can't shoot) and were/are used to teach classes at Infantry School East and West. There are also functional cutaway models in the same scale. They used some big M60 and M2 versions when I was training to be a machine gunner, I've seen the M14 version in real life as well, even though it was no longer the service rifle.
