    I am Richard Marks, volunteer at Air Mobility Command (AMC) Museum, Dover AFB, DE.  Our museum is trying to locate a handheld sextant that we could use to teach young folks how we, old time navigators, shot sun lines and 3-star.  Our objective is to ensure legacy navigation remains alive in this period of GPS.  The mission of our museum is to show the public aircraft of the "transportation" venue.  I would welcome any and all contacts dealing with celestial navigation particularily where I might located HO249 tables, precomps, etc.  And if you are ever in Delaware, visit our museum.  It's free with guided tours.

    Any old nav please contact me.  I want to keep our profession alive.  There aren't many of us left who depended on celestial, pressure pattern, loran, radar,etc and I would like to develop a nav display capturing the time when we, not computers, were the navigators.  My email address is richardsmarks{at}comcast.net and my phone is 302 462-7096.
