Planes checked after fuel found in vintage craft,

Col. Cassie Barlow, 88th Air Base Wing commander at Wright Patterson Air Force Base,
Cards Against Humanity, said Friday that artwork on historic WWII era aircraft, like this B 17G,
cards against humanity print, and bomber jackets in the collection at the National Museum of the United States Air Force would remain despite an Air Force wide order for the removal of obscene, inappropriate or insensitive images from bases. “I think the tradition and history at the Air Force museum is just that,” Barlow said in a press conference with reporters. “That’s our history. We’re not going to go back and change those things because that’s part of our history and that’s an important part of our organization. Air Force know a lot about the vintage planes they have on display, particularly those that have been there awhile.
But until last week, they did not know that the A 1E Skyraider, on floor display since April 1968, held 200 gallons of fuel.
Museum procedures require all aircraft to be defueled prior to exhibition at the museum. Apparently, that never happened when the Skyraider arrived some 44 years ago.
Because of the discovery, officials at the museum that draws some 1.2 million visitors a year are having the fuel tanks checked for the entire collection of planes on display.
Restoration crews reviewing old records discovered there was still fuel in the Skyraider, according to the museum. A crew purged the fuel Saturday and Sunday, forcing the weekend closure of the Korean War,

“The inspections will be completed as soon as possible and at that time all museum aircraft on display will have been checked,” Air Force museum spokesman Rob Bardua said in response to questions from the Dayton Daily News. “Aircraft on display are continuously monitored by museum staff and volunteers for irregularities on a daily basis.”
The A 1E was a propeller powered attack plane that used in both the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Wright Patterson’s former 4950th Test Wing had incorrectly certified that the Skyraider was purged of fuel, the museum said.
