PLEASE READ THE WARNING AT THE END OF THIS CLUE
Note: I've been told there is a new fence that prevents access to the box except during museum hours. I cannot verify this in person. Would like for the next finder to verify if possible. Thank you.

Here is one very special aircraft stamp carved by Kirbert of Florida planted here for your enjoyment.
How to find the box. If you go during museum hours the gate will be open; The gate may be closed after 5 pm but it is possible to walk down the road and go around the chain link. It does not encompass the area where the boxes are hidden. It only looks like it does.
Box #1 = B-25J Mitchell
Park in the visitors parking area. Begin by walking to the southeast corner of the paved parking area. Look exactly east for a medium size blue sign with large white "EXIT" word and large white arrow pointing left. From that sign walk at about 65 degrees for about 90 steps. Look left and spy a cluster of Barrel Cactus. It looks like a group of three. Head over to this cluster and you will find that it is really a cluster of five. You should be able to see the sign on the Spirit of Freedom hanger at 210 degrees. Look in the center of this cluster. B-25J Mitchell is “hanging out” here.
Box #2 = Retired. Pulled and sent to be planted in another part of the US
YOU WILL REQUIRE A HEAVY GLOVE OR “GRABBER” TO RETRIEVE THIS BOX.
