Prince William County Defines “Cool”

By Greg L | 25 October 2009 | Patriotism, Prince William County | 8 Comments

Regular people getting to ride in tanks and watch flamethrowers shooting fifty-foot fireballs into the air.  Man, do we live in the greatest county on the face of this earth, or what!

    I was there, and it was a picture perfect day. Got my T-shirt to boot! I’ve been going to the open house for years, and there’s always something new to see. Alan Cors’s hobby has resulted in the creation of a national museum, and for that effort we owe him a debt of gratitude. Don’t forget the VMMV site where it all started: http://www.vmmv.org

    Ah! That explains the UH-1 I saw yesterday while riding in the area.

    I was confused because it was in military colors but they’ve all been retired from active duty and the Yankee models that the USMC uses are distinctive.

    Pretty cool.

    That one sure didn’t look like it had been retired. It had all the markings of a VANG bird, and I assumed when I saw it that it was part of the grop that supports the 29th ID. The crew were in uniform, but I didn’t look closely enough to tell whether they had insignia.

    The UH-1 is a great piece of equipment that I had the chance to ride in on quite a few occasions, and I’m sorry to see them going away, even if the Blackhawk is a nice replacement. Lotsa fun memories of helocasting, sitting in the door with my legs dangling in the breeze during an NOE flight, and getting from one place to another in a hurry.

    A lot of armor rounded out this pretty incredible collection. What didn’t get in this short video was a lot of relatively obscure British scout cars and a Matilda and Challenger tank, lots of Russian stuff including a T-72, BRDM, BTR-50 and the T-55 in the video, and the bevy of U.S. vehicles including M-113s, the 105mm SP in the video, half-tracks, Shermans, a Patton, and even a Sheridan light tank. There must have been at least thirty tracked vehicles there, and all of them seemed operational. It’s the most impressive collection I’ve ever seen and included a lot of pretty obscure stuff I thought I would never see.

    A truly awesome event. I wish the weather had been better on Saturday or I would have been there both days.

    The Huey was active. The VA NG was nice enough support the effort.

    We bloggers REALLY need some identifying marks. I was there yesterday and ConcreteBob was there all weekend.

    Outstanding video.

    Bob loaded some up at our site.
