The jet looks like an L-29. The one in the hangar is hard to make out. T-34?

I flew in some in Venezuela into some remote camps...the stewardess were dressed up in excellent skirts and leopard print shirts and scarves...and they could navigate the steep walkway while on ground with ease....an excellent experience.

I jumped out of DC3s a few times...another amazing experience....fun stuff....great planes with great lines IMO....

the bassler conversions are pretty sweet....http://www.baslerturbo.com/

I was stationed at Lockbourne both before and after my tour in SEA. The AC-130's were located there until late 1971 when they moved to Hurlburt. Then in 74-75 I was in the AFR in C-123's at Lockbourne.

Can anyone ID them?




First one is a t34, not big enough for a t28 I think?

I know the second one is not an l39...looks 50/60s to me

Not a radial engine. It's a T-34.

When I was at Mojave (pretty long ago) there was a shop converting those for target drones. IMHO: Pretty sad.

Now they are converting F-16s as target drones, I think.

See this at Renton Field (WA) all summer. Douglas A-26 Invader converted to passenger I think. Think it's hangered there at the end of the the Boeing ramp. The real treat is the Beavers and there is a powered glider around too that is fun to watch. Breaks up the day watching functional tests on 737s.
