Greetings all,

 

 

   As a major Military History nut who lives in Superior, you'd think I would have visited the Richard Bong Museum years ago.... but the truth is I had never been there.... before today!!

 

For those of you who don't know, Richard Bong is America's top scoring Ace of all time and was a Superior resident. So there's a lot of stuff named after him in Superior... like the Richard Bong Bridge! Anyways, his P-38 lightning is on display in the museum... which, by the way, is much bigger in person... thing friggin takes up the whole room...

I was so ready for something totally different when I read Bong museum! LOL! Great post! Plus 1!

(that tractor / truck thing is wild! and I'm wondering how many tourists have pressed the detonators on the mine to see if it works?)
