General Scott Remembered at April 10 Golf Tournament

This year's 10th Annual Brigadier General Robert L. Scott, Jr. Memorial Golf Scramble will be held on April 10 at Healy Point Country Club in Macon, Georgia. General Scott, Macon's hometown hero, became a fighter ace and author during World War II, served for two decades as the Museum of Aviation Foundation's National Fund Raising Chairman, passed away 9 years ago on February 27 -- two months before his 98th birthday. His memory lives on at the Museum of Aviation with an exhibit, his P-40 fighter and a simple mission he instilled in everyone he met - make the next generation better.

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.

Digging Up the Past
Robins AFB home to 68-year old crash site
Written by Angela Woolen

The swamp is slowly burying the metal remains. Sixty-eight years ago, seven people were killed when a UC-45 crashed shortly after takeoff from Robins Air Force Base.

The airplane was returning to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base with its crew of inspectors. Shortly after 9 p.m. on Feb. 13, 1947, it crashed into the swamp just north of the runway which at that time ran from north to south.

Six military men and one civilian died in the crash. The bodies of the men were all recovered. Lt. Col. Gilbert E. Layman, Capt. William W. Whalen, Lt. Col. Robert A. Zaiser, 1st Lt. Laverne W. Gonyer, Tech. Sgt. Austin E. Casebier, civilian T. R. Billings and Maj. Charles H. Greiner were those who perished in the accident.

“The force of the impact ripped off the propeller,” said Bill Paul, collections manager at the Museum of Aviation. “It was moving fast when it hit to tear it up like it did.”
