USS Midway

 

My March 2005 USS Midway Collection

SDACM ~ March 03 ~ 08, 2005

 

USS Midway

 

 

The pictures contained in this gallery are ones I took between March 03 ~ 08, 2005 in San Diego, California. These pictures are of different views of Midway & show many close-ups in various parts of the ship. During this trip, I was able to tour Midway / SDACM & saw several new exhibits & aircraft. I was also able to revisit the USS Midway Aircraft Restoration Hangar, which is located at NAS North Island. I met up with many old friends & was finally able to meet several new ones. I was also able to finally meet Clint Griffin, who gave me nine new cd's for his photo collection on this site.

I was armed with both my old 35 mm camera, as well as my newer digital camera. I took many new photos and they show how Midway looks as a museum today. Some of the highlights in the new gallery are: Fo'c'scle, Medical, Midway University, Ordnance Control, Junior Officer's Bunkroom & the Circle of Friends donor ceremony. I also took photos of the restoration work being performed on the RA-5C Vigilante, A-4F Skyhawk, SBD-1 Dauntless, F/A-18A Hornet, as well as the other previously restored aircraft. A new aspect for this trip was several harbor excursions, where I took many photos of Midway from a whole new perspective.
