Subject: [OM] IMG: More Kodak APS Images

I appreciate all of the responses to my posting of APS images. One LUGGER who 
responded off-list asked if I had any more of these APS images.  In reviewing 
my images from 1986, I found another set.

Normally, cameras are not allowed on-base at Arnold Engineering Development 
Center, where I spent 39 years.  But, in 1986, the base held an open house for 
employees and their families. Displays were set up showing items of interest, 
and cameras were permitted.  I took advantage of this opportunity to capture a 
few images to which I had not had access previously.  I am almost positive that 
the Kodak APS camera was my choice that day.

The Propulsion Wind Tunnel Facility is composed of two 16-ft wind tunnels and 
one 4-ft wind tunnel, along with the plant equipment to support them.  The main 
drive system for the large tunnels originally had 216,000 HP on one shaft, and 
has since been upgraded.  Here is a view of the compressor for the transonic 
tunnel.

That red & white stack is 200 ft tall.

This is the nameplate on one of the two largest motors.

This is one of the numerous auxiliary compressors that support the tunnel 
operations.

At the time of the open house, a lot of store testing was being done in the 
transonic tunnels and three neat models were on display:

The little Kodak APS camera did its job!
