WHAT'S HAPPENING

Global Hawk:Workhorse of Recon
By Angela Woolen

The Global Hawk flies missions all around the world. One of those landed at the Museum of Aviation’s Century of Flight hangar – so to speak.

The RQ-4 Global Hawk is a high-altitude, longendurance unmanned aerial reconnaissance system designed to capture real-time information for wartime efforts as well as homeland security and disaster relief.

With its impressive 116-foot wingspan, maneuvering the aircraft into the hangar was a delicate process. Part of the stand was put on the Global Hawk before it reached the Century of Flight hangar. A crane lifted the fuselage up in the air while workers stabilized the wings before bolting them into place, said Mike Rowland, museum curator.

The Thunderbird display opened in 2009 at the Century of Flight hangar at the Museum of Aviation.

The Air Force combat F-16A was the first F-16 model used by the Thunderbirds, the Air Force's official air demonstration team.

The aircraft on display flew from 1982 to 1991. The plane was converted from its combat role to that of a demonstration aircraft, removing the guns and putting in a smoke machine.

"They demonstrate the capabilities of the Air Force combat airplane," said museum curator Mike Rowland.

Tours can offer insight, and behind-the-scenes tours at the Museum of Aviation happen almost every day. Whether you're a kindergartener, a senior citizen or somewhere in between, these tours are designed for everyone.

A Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps group from Charles Drew High school in Riverdale recently received a guided tour from Candi James, who is in charge of those tours at the museum.

The C-130 is on the second floor of the Eagle Building. Most people see the front of the airplane with a pilot mannequin. Guided tours take people inside the fuselage of the plane.
