This vehicle is on display at the NASA Wallops Island Visitor's Center
in Virginia. I would have shot some more photos, but mosquitoes were

Hampton Air Power Park
David Weeks photographed this vehicle on display at the Air Power Park
in Hampton, Virginia. The Mercury capsule is a boilerplate model, but
the escape tower was the genuine article.
