I believe the Champlin Museum is outside of Phoenix, Az. San Diego has the
San Diego Aerospace Museum at Balboa Park. Highly recommended! Check out the
SDAM Web page at

Here is the current listing of aircraft at San Diego:

Yes Champli has a SPAD XIII. I have photos that I will send to Allan. I also
have photos of the Old Rhinebeck (Lt. Stricklands) SPAD XIII. I hope to send
to Allan a series of photos from Rhinebeck, Champlain and Cavanaugh. The
Cavanaugh shots are of a D-VII (Udet's with cowel covers removed and a very
nice Camel.
