I presently volunteer at the NJ Aviation Hall of Fame and we recently rescued the Bendix airport beacon. It was mounted on the roof. we plan to use it in our Airport room and give some of the history of the Bendix story. If anybody has any artifact pictures of the Bendix operation please contact me at [email protected]
My uncle worked in Bendix his name was Steve Bognatz. Does anyone know him?. He worked on various projects including skylab. He gave me brochures when the space shuttle program was being conceived and the illustrations on them do not even come close to what it looks like. IHe also gave me alot of other memoribilia from the space program that he geot from Bendix. Its a shame that all our history is being sacrificed for the sake of scumbag developers and nothing is being preserved for our children. I am equally upset at what happeed to the ITT tower in Nutley. Also Curtiss Wright in Woodridge. I know there is alot of equipment getting scrapped in Bendix. I would love to take a walk in there and Curtiss Wright to see what was left and to for the last time go back in time when technology was what kept Amereica going and the electronics industry was booming in the US. NOTE: I found pics on the web that shows the inside of Curtiss Wright as someone went in and took the pics and rread articles of things that were left behind from an era that will never happen again in the US. This has tho change people!!!!
