Flew over to Pinal last Sat 09/22 and as I landed I saw a C-17 on the ramp at the end of the runway so I rolled out all the way to the end to pass by him and then as I was taxiing back he announced that he was going to taxi for take off so I pulled off and shut down and let him go buy and took some pics

Marana on February 11, 1972:


B-17G-95-DL, N809Z tanker c71 at Marana Airpark, Arizona on February 11, 1972. It was delivered to the U. S. Army Air Corps as 44-83785. It was converted to a TB-17H trainer, then to an SB-17G Search and Rescue plane, and then back to a TB-17H. Atlantic General Enterprises of Washington, D. C. acquired it on September 1, 1960. It was operated by Intermountain Aviation (a front for the CIA) from October 4, 1962. It had a chute for agents to slide out the tail and a scissors mechanism installed on the nose to pick up infiltrated agents. It reportedly dropped a pair of agents onto an abandoned Soviet ice station drifting in the Arctic Ocean. It appeared in the movie Thunderball. It was converted to a tanker in July 1969. It was purchased by Evergreen Helicopters on March 1, 1975, which changed its registration to N207EV on March 6, 1979 and operated it as a tanker until 1989. Then it was restored to stock configuration and named Shady Lady. It is currently based at the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, Oregon


The chute in the tail has been crudely plugged.


P4Y-2 c50 N7237C at Marana Air Park, Arizona on February 11, 1972. It still bears markings that it acquired while it was in the service of the Fuerza Aérea Hondureña.

It is.  It's actually kind of a good thing that the "sandbox" is relatively small and with a limited number of subjects, as there's more than enough to keep you busy for the short amount of time that the airport director will very graciously take out of his day to escort you.
