DIRECTOR’S NOTES SEP 2018
BROADMOOR HANGAR – In work
I’m working with Civil Engineering to get a breakout of dollars spent specifically for the Broadmoor Hangar.
8 Aug. At my meeting with WSA director (Al Strait) we discussed:
– Broadmoor Hangar projects being put on Funded Lists
– Need for Museum Foundation rep to be at any future meetings
— so they also know how to proceed with fundraising that will supplement the USAF’s funding
13 -15 Aug. AFCEC and CE reps met with Museum staff regarding itemized wall-to-wall project list for all of Museum buildings
– To be used for 2019 21 SW Funded Project listings.
– Include figuring out how to use any $$ allocated to the Museum Foundation through a History Colorado Grant.
– Wants us to wait on any submittals for grants until she determines exactly which projects MUST be funded by 21 SW, and which can be “underwritten” by grants to the Museum Foundation.
NOTE: change in History Colorado grant reviewers in July – Cynthia Nieb retired, new officer – Meghan Eflin
POC: Pam Miller
BOTTOM LINE: 21 SW/CC has lined up Civil engineering, Contracting and AFCEC to review the existing Broadmoor Hangar plans, push to construct a Wing Innovation Center here, push to mitigate drainage problems, and determine exactly which parts of the expansion can be funded by 21 SW – then put it on a project for funding and execution. Several versions of floor plan presented to 21 SW/CC.
Aircraft funded for 2018 include: EB-57 Canberra, F-104 Starfighter, F-86 Sabre, F-89 Scorpion, and F-106 Delta Dagger. Work has started. F-104 Starfighter will be repainted in SE Asian Vietnam colors. The aircraft signage will be replaced with a story board to include information on the combat pilot who flew that aircraft. EB-57 will be repainted to reflect 1976 Bi-Centennial color scheme used by Air Defense Command for the 17th Defense System Evaluation Squadron.
