The Hiller Aviation Museum has been on my "get around to" list since shortly after it opened. Today was "get around to that one" day.
It's pretty interesting; got quite an assortment of vintage & reproduction aircraft and aeronautical oddities, 1850-present, and some hands-on stuff. (I tried the Hiller Flying Platform simulator. I think I landed on my head - couldn't tell which way was up. I even managed to get the thing spinning, and the docent apparently hadn't seen that before - the original had vanes for correcting for spin, but the simulator apparently isn't meant to spin in the first place.)
Then there's this thing:
OK... what it actually seems to be is a sort of manned ducted fan flying-beer-can thingie.
Further randomness: is "autogyro" Greek for "make your own darn sandwich"?
