    Not actually a private collection, it is a registered non-profit and acquired many of the items through Govt donations. Unfortunately over the past few years Mike's health has seriously deteriorated. I was told during SLICS that he will never make it back to the museum, I have been told since that his health has now gone down significantly further.

    The future of the museum is in question, speaking with one board member there are many issues, several which may not be possible to overcome. If you have interest I suggest that you visit sooner rather than later.

    There was a Dragon version developed with a nose probe, but I don't know if it was ever fielded or not. It was one of those attempts to extend the life of the program that was too little, too late. The TOW variant didn't last long either, rapidly replaced by the TOW-2B carrying two EFP "look down - shoot down" charges.

    Here is a picture of my TOW practice to give you a better view of the airframe. The item behind it is not complete/correct, made of a couple range pick up pieces slapped together.

    I'm sorry to say that I have just been informed that Mike Brueckmann, founder of the wonderful Jefferson Barracks Ordnance Museum, passed away last night. He will be missed.

    I considered him a friend who I talked to frequently years back when I lived in St. Louis. He will be greatly missed, thanks for letting us know.
