The AC-130A Gunship and all it's armament impressed the boys

Some aircraft are large, some are small, very small, like the white kit

Let's go inside and see the cargo bay

Just a big long tube, but capable of carrying lots of cargo

The boys liked sitting in the flight deck and seeing all the instruments & knobs
