I have a ton of images that I'll roll out slowly as per the request of my guide. We only made it through half of the place, too!

Yes, I'm on top of a C-5A.  Grin


Oh hai!

Just a few.

A NASA F-106 that was the testbed for making a rocket plane. The big plate on top of the nose is the anchor point for a cable to tow the aircraft. Yeah.... confused me, too.


D-21 drone


Apocalyptic ghost plane?


Galaxy cluster


Three MiG killers. During Desert Storm, the left plane shot down a MiG-23 on 28 Jan 1991, the middle plane shot down a Mirage F-1 on 19 Jan 1991, and the right plane shot down a Mirage F-1 as well. Sad to see these planes just sitting here, wasting away.

David and Goliath. This F-14 (BuNo 159437 'AC202', USS John F. Kennedy VF-32) is one of the two that engaged, and subsequently shot down, two Lybian MiG-23s over the Gulf of Sidra on 4 Jan 1989. It has yet to be scrapped because there is interest for museum placement, and I hope to God it goes there! Its wingman (BuNo 159610, 'AC207') is currently on display at the Udvar-Hazy part of the National Air & Space Museum in D.C. Again, so sad to see a battle proven hero just sitting like this.

Solid salvo, Brian!

I think that F-106 might have been the last airworthy one before NASA retired it.  I remember seeing the images of that being towed behind a C-141 in an old issue of World Air Power Journal and thinking "WTF?"  Good to see that hasn't been scrapped yet.

Great Series!

I try to avoid the "hearts and flowers" approach to AMARG, but how is that gondola not in a museum?

Thanks, Jay! I agree with your sentiment, but there are a few things there that SHOULD be in museums somewhere. This gondola was originally slated to be restored down in Florida, but returned to AMARG at a point in time I can't recall right now.

Terrific series Brian. I'm always looking forward to your next post. I especially like your "fisheye" work in these last few images.
