    I had the pleasure of getting a tour in ’04 and Mr. Littlefield was a terrific host. One thing I didn’t see on the video was the fact that, parked out front, he had one of the propellers off of the Luisitania. He had apparently underwritten some sort of tour of Luisitania materials in the 1990s, I guess, and when the tour went bankrupt, ended up with the propeller.

    Terrific guy and a fantastic museum. Importing a SCUD launcher was apparently the thing that gave him the biggest headache.
