    Great to read what all you know about the MA-1 & MA-2 Kollsman sextants. I am 
    a former USAF Navigator & Bombardier who flew using the MA-2 and the later 
    D-1 sextants in the 60s. I am also the Historian for the Air Force navigators 
    Observers Association (www.afnoa.org). Member web sites are: 
    www.james-connally.org (a former big USAF Air Base at Waco Texas where Navs 
    were trained 1950-1966) and web site www.usaf-nav-history. You can post on 
    both the AFNOA and USAF-Nav-History sites. 
    Are you a former nav? We are looking for a MA-2 for our collections; do you 
    ever offer up any of your sextants? I do our museum accessions program and 
    would be interested if you do. 
    I do repairs on the D-1s here for our exhibits. I also set-up the only 
    Navigator exhibit we know of, in the Airline History Museum 
    (www.airlinehistorymuseum.com)in Kansas City, MO at the downtown airport. 
    Looking forward to hearing back from you, Ron Barrett, AFNOA-Historian, USAF 
    NavBomb Ret. (305)797-0745 www.ronbarrett.com, 1406 S. Lexington St. Holden,
