That is a Canadair Sabre, perhaps a Mk 6.

It's been there since 1961, per the Sabres Worldwide site: http://f-86.tripod.com/usa.html
It looks like it's been covered in that spray-on cement they use to make swimming pools :shock: .

That's just wrong...

:shock:

The only good I can see of that is that:

1. It's not totally destroyed yet
2. Some children might get the idea to like old aircraft

Yes, it is in fact covered in Gunite. There was also an F9F like that in So-Cal as I recall but I don't remember where.

after re - cruising this thread it looks as if the sand box sabre is a little smoothed out lines wise. look at the leading edges etc. did somebody fiberglass over key areas where the little rug rats could get boo boos???

Once again, if the city hadn't put it to this use it would be beer cans. And how would you get the cement off now? With a 10 pound sledge hammer? Could be a corroded mess inside, but who knows. I wish I had one of those to play in as a kid!

Wasn't the FH-1 Phantom now in the Naval Air Museum rescued from a similar fate? Seems to me I remember reading that one of the challenges faced by restorers was that the cockpit had been filled with concrete.
