Went to the Air & Space Museum--they have an SS-19 and a MMIII. Wasn't able to go to the Udvar-Hazy.

I have been to the Smithsonian and stood next to the MMIII and the others. Some 30 years after the fact, it kind of adds a new perspective to what they are all about.

Seems I am still having some problems logging into, or staying logged into the site.
Out of 6 tries, I have been able to post only twice even though it says I have successfully logged on.
I hope this doesn't continue, I would hate to lose contact with you guys after all this time.

If you ever get to Tucson, you can visit Basic Launch Complex 571-7 and stand next to the bird on Silo Level 2, or if you have the bladder for it, the tour of levels 2 down to 7. Easier to see the one at Evergreen Air Museum in McMinnville OR. (Nowhere near as impressive, though.)
