My visit to the Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum is perhaps the most memorable stop on my four week stay in Colorado in November 2009. The museum displays full-size/complete aircraft inside of its hangar and outside on property. A majority are near complete and it is apparent that the staff is committed in presenting aircraft close to their original operational condition. The highlight of my visit was the personal tour that I received from a veteran; Col. Vince Gordon (ret.), who saw battle as a fighter pilot in WW2 to Vietnam. He was extremely informative and offered a first-hand account of action and aircraft. Col. Gordon was also a founding member of the "Sabre Knights", one of the USAF's early acrobatic teams. Col. Gordon granted me access to the cockpit of the B-29. That experience will be with me for the rest of my life! I was so impressed to find such extensive collection of aircraft and military artifacts. Don't be fooled that this is not a great museum because it is nestled away in the small city of Pueblo. My personal favourites were the working displays of engines and landing gear, and the Lockheed Ventura, an aircraft that I have researched extensively over the past decade and to find a complete version on display at the museum was a great pleasure. There is a gift shop onsite offers books and aircraft themed toys. Many of the volunter staff are veterans and can offer great insight. The museum has plans for a hanger extension, which is schedule for construction in 2010. Take at least an hour and stop by the Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum to offer your support to this wonderful organization.
