This year, 2010, marks the 5th anniversary of www.dmairfield.org going online. It also marks the 10th anniversary of your Webmaster's efforts against the Davis-Monthan Airfield project.

To celebrate the anniversaries, the "seat of power" for the project and the Web site has had its infrastructure enhanced. Your Webmaster's office was remodeled April 19-30 by installing new book cases, storage drawers, cabinets and files, and by a new coat of paint.

These enhancements will ease the labor of keeping in order the equipment, photographs, paper records, artifacts, charts and other accoutrements associated with the Davis-Monthan Airfield project and Web site. Thanks for your patience while the remodeling was underway. All that to bring you the best of www.dmairfield.org still yet to come over the next decades!

Opening pocket doors reveals file cabinets within. The red dots mean that the entities within the folders, in this case some of the pilots, are represented by an online biography page. As you can see, there's still work to be done.
