This is a thread where we get to post about aircraft that are not in use
and will be sitting there for you to enjoy.... I know of a few



My favorite place is the Grumman Memorial Park in Calverton on RT 25.
Truly an awesome place!

These were taken tonight, while on the phone with Tom Alfano.....sorry
Tom, this was why I needed to go! ahahahah

ah! a ghost! thats really cool. very nice pics. I hope they can get a chnce to do some somre stuff with the A6, but i know they need a heck of alot more funidng for a lighitng system, landscaping, etc. I love what they did with the parking lot, painting "GRUMMAN" just like the runway.

I got her at SRQ there are two sitting on the ramp at the FBO I fly my Lears out of. Czech Mig 23's they have been preparing them for return for flight for about two years now and supposedly were going to fly this year now they are saying this winter but we will see.

As long as we're on the topic of captured MiGs, the Israeli AF museum at Hazerim (great place - 40+ on display, 80+ intact and stored [F-4s/A-4s/Kfirs/Fougas], and a boneyard) has a handful of MiGs that have been flown into Israel by defecting pilots. There are also the twisted, burnt frames of a couple of aircraft that have had encounters with Israeli missiles!

And, as long as we're talking about preserved frames reading 'N.Y. Air Guard,' don't forget about the F-84 sitting at the entrance to HPN.

I know this is mostly a Long Island-based group, but do any of you know of any preserved frames in New Jersey? Offhand, the only ones that I can think of are the 4 or 5 at the Museum at Teterboro.
