I just returned from Hilton Head Island SC and had a chance to go through the 8th air force museum in Savanah Georgia

Here is photos of some of the displays. They have a Medal Of Honor display to William Lawley 305 bomb group. Worth a visit if your in the area.

They recently added a B-17 they are restoring to wartime condition

Always looking for anything related to the 8th AAF and flight gear of W.W.2.

Also any info on Advisory Team 98 the unit my late father served in.

Great pictures. I would love to go there. I like the photo of the oil tanks burning with what looks like a B-24 Liberator leaving the scene. That is really cool... :thumbsup:

 

Thanks for sharing!

Very nice stuff not to mention the B17! :w00t: If I only had the cash... Haha. I've never been to this museum but don't they have a mockup of Don Bryan's mustang Little one III or something. I can't remember if it was his plane or not, but I can barely see a Bluenoser behind the B17.

Looking for anything related to Army Ranger Battalions from World War II

I visited this museum a few years ago when I was in Savannah and it is definitely worth the trip. Thanks for posting.

:thumbsup:

Thanks for posting these photos! I was down there a couple of years ago and it was well worth the stop. Do they still have the waist gunner video game working?

I visited the 8th Air Force Museum last summer. VERY impressed! It is an excellent place to visit. I really like their diaromas and aircraft displays. The amount of artifacts there keeps growing too. I also enjoyed buying some 8th AF stuff in the gift shop.
