763 Seibert Road, Scott Air Force Base, IL, 62225 / Cake artist: Tom Hunt
Located by one of the entrances to the base, this serves as a great public place next to its restricted area. Scott Air Force Base, named after Corporal Frank S. Scott (the first enlisted person to be killed in an aviation crash), is strategically located in the central part of the Midwest. According to the park’s website, its mission is to “portray the history of Scott Air Force Base, the Air Mobility Command and the Airlift, Air Refueling and Aeromedical Evacuation missions.” As part of the mission, the park has quite a few planes on display. Information about each plane is to give the visitor a lot of knowledge about history.
A visitor’s center for the park is planned, which will provide plenty of information about Scott Air Force Base and its history.
