Oakland Aviation Museum P-51 Mustang and Helicopter

P-51 Mustang 3/4 scale replica
I thoroughly enjoyed sketching at the Oakland Aviation Museum. It was great being surrounded by so many flying machines.
Hiller Helicopter and a random sea plane (I think)
I was surprised how you could see all the rivets that held the sections of metal together. My mother was riveter in WWII and might have even riveted one of the planes. Even though most of the planes in the museum were actually flown, they looked so handmade close up.
