Scouring the information super airways can sometimes be a tough,
if educational, task for the Aero-News staff... but it also allows
us to check out some truly neat and exciting sites, so it's not
that bad a gig. On any given day, we may check dozens (and often
hundreds) of different sources for story ideas, and facts
confirmation. And, as is the nature of our business, much of this
is done on the Internet.
The ANN gang decided we probably shouldn't keep some of the neat
sites, info resources, and organizations we've discovered to
ourselves... so we decided to bring you Aero-Linx. These are the
sites that WE check out -- when we need added perspective, a new
spin on a day's topic... or just want to escape into
cyber-aero-space for awhile.
Look for some of our favorite sites, coming each day to ANN via
Suggestions for future Aero-Linx segments are always
welcome, as well.
Aero-Linx: Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor
The visitor's experience begins in Hanger 37, a 42,000 square
foot former seaplane hangar that survived the December 7, 1941
attack. Transportation to Ford Island is via trolleys, which will
make a brief stop at the USS Battleship Missouri. After arrival in
the Pacific Aviation Museum's lobby, guests enter a 200-seat
theater where they view a 10-minute movie covering the surprise
attack on Pearl Harbor, including historic footage. Leaving the
theater visitors enter a corridor that sets the stage with sound
effects and photos of what life was like on December 7th, 1941.
Upon entering the exhibit area of 25,000 square feet, visitors
first see an authentic Japanese Zero in a diorama setting on the
deck of the Japanese carrier Hiryu at dawn on December 7th.
