There used to be a T-33 or F-80 on a pole at a rest area on IH-10 somewhere in the Florida panhandle. It's been years since I've been there, so my memory has faded.

There's also a B-52 on display at the Orlando International Airport.

VMB-611 provided Air Support to U.S. Navy PT Boats on various missions in Davao Gulf, Mindanao, P.I. My father was involved in a couple of these strikes to destroy Japanese PT Boats at Piso Point.

This boat, like our warbirds, deserves to be restored!

Another one here in my home state. An F-86 in front of the "Michigan's Own Military and Space Museum" in Frankenmuth. It was after closing time when we stopped by, so I didn't get to go inside. It's painted with the markings of two different Korean War pilots from Michigan on either side.

I'm a prop-head, so I don't know what variant it is. It was restored by Maurice "Mr. Ford Tri-Motor" in Vicksburg..I remember seeing it disassembled in his "back 40" back in the mid-90s, still in it's Bundesluftwaffe markings.

How about we pin this thread, so everybody can continue to contribute?

Pt. Mugu Pacific Missle Test Range/NAS also has a great "Roadside Attractions" display along the Pacific Coast Route 1 Hwy, south of Oxnard. The below link provides some thumbnail photos of Pt. Mugu.

Dear MustangDriver,

Last night I did some "research" on roadside aircraft in Pennsylvania. I noted that there are four locations around Pittsburgh. Three are due east of Pittsburg: A T-33 and UH-1 is located in Greensburg. Down the road another T-33 is located at Delmont. A third T-33 is located at Irwin, Pennsylvania. All about 8 miles within each other! :shock: :D Also I have noted that A F-86 is located at Imperial just south of the Pittsburgh Int' l Airport. Any chance you could ever get any pics of these?

Dear Eric aka. Airic,

I see that you saw that F-4 in Salamanca. Well, I see that there is a F-4 located in Hindales just a few miles East of Salamance. I wonder....is this the same F-4 they are talking about or are there actually two different F-4s in the general area? Also I think there is an aircraft displayed in Jamestown.


Also noted tha there is a possible F-86 in Avon, Pa just outside of Lebanon. I wish I had known that last year as I was in Lebanon several times. Had I known there was an F-86 in town I would have photographed it. Oh, well. :?

Folks, on my way up to Geneseo tomorrow I plan on taking pictures of that C-46 in Hammondsport and I may pass Geneseo to get to Canandaigua just 30 miles from Geneseo to picture an F-86. But was wondering if anyone was going to pass that way? If so I might just scratch that idea if they could get some pictures of that F-86. :wink:

Cheers,
Nate

I have that one noted in the Locator, but I only have an approximate location...

Could you help me out with a better location?
