A Morning on the USS Midway

This past holiday break, I went on a family trip to San Diego.  On our last morning, we visited the USS Midway Museum.  I wandered around making images primarily with the M9 and the Voigtlander 12mm f/5.6 lens.

I really like the way they've created this museum.  The flight deck is filled with all manner of interesting planes and helicopters.

You climb into several of the aerial vehicles as my daughter and sister did here.

The areas below the flight deck are also filled with interesting stuff, including all kinds of dials and switches that Maya enjoyed pushing.

The passageways on the ship are narrow and low.  I'm wondering if the ship I'll be on in South Georgia this fall will be even narrower.

The general rule of thumb on the ship seems to be that the higher up in rank you go, the better your living and dining quarters.  The captain and fleet admiral had it well (not pictured).
Now that is a serious mixer.

More dials, switches and knobs.
