I just found out that the Super Guppy is scheduled to land at the USAFM 8/22 around 4:00 P.M. Can anyone verify this as fact?

The funny thing I thought that I had been checking the museum web site. I put an address about the CCT in my favorites and would check on the daily. Stupid me, it was an old link and last updated 7/17, trying to think how to blame someone in the family for my mistake.

Thanks Misterg97, now that I know what my mistake is I'll check the proper web page. The problem is that I live about 150 miles away and would have to leave well before the go no-go decision is made and Wednesday is the only day that I can take off to go see it. I just hope that the weather is good.
