Hey Joe

Nice pictures. Any idea of what became of the B-10, considering there is only one known example in existance today?

Starfighter in Sirjansland, The Netherlands, put on display by a car breaker. Dutch markings are false, as it is actually ex Belgium AF FX-45.

Obviously this guy had a thing going for having his own aircraft on display. Before the F-104 was there he had the cockpit section of Boeing B-707 OD-AFY (ex TMA of Lebanon) for 11 years in the same spot:

This cockpit section is now in use as an underwater toy for some diving club.

How did that C-124 ever get cut up? Man, you think someone would have saved it. I was just out in Appleton, and stayed at a hotel just a block from that tank and F-86.

The F-89 is a rare (maybe only one left) B model.
Last time I saw it (1980) it was on its gear in a park.

In the 1977 movie Telefon, there is a scene at an Army base with a pylon-mounted F-89 at the main gate. The scene is set in Denver; the IMDB listing mentions Great Falls, Montana, but there aren't any F-89s listed there. Can anyone ID this one?

This Fairey Firefly has been an attraction in the main street of Griffith, New South Wales in Australia for, at least, 35 years.

Tom, PT 305 was saved by the same guys here in the Houston area that rebuilt PT-309. They undertook the project after 309 was taken from their care and placed in the hole at the Nimitz Museum in Fredricksburg, TX. They were underfunded and undermanned from the gitgo. Looks like the Elco boat that they saved that went north was destroyed. At least the Higgins boat went back to New Orleans where they have more rescources.

I too was in the marine industry and helped the guys with some of the issues on 309. It wasn't in much better shape than 305 when it got to Galveston. Matter of fact shortly after it's arrival in Galveston, due to the ineptitude of the former museum director she sank at her moorings ! When it went to Fredricksburg it was actually almost ready to run. Her guns had been reinstalled and she was a proud boat once again.

The first two pictures show PT-309 in the water and the remarkable work done largely by volunteers. When they started none of the deck structure existed. The boat had been completely modified to be an excursion boat. The only thing original was her hull, and it needed a ton of work. The link shows the boat where she sits today in a hole simulating the boat at a dock in the South Pacific.
