    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.

    There is an amazing military museum with so many tanks and planes from apartheid and nazi and south african and british and other countries armies in Johannesburg in South Africa. i took a wander around there in between some meetings last time I was there and was blown away.
