p-3a-01
I believe the BuNo on this aircraft to be 150529. Note Snoopy as nose art. The only other aircraft it could be is 150528, but even a fine, large-scale scan does not allow me to see that last digit as an 8. That aircraft had different nose art. Supposedly 150529 was some sort of a classified mission aircraft and it is now in pieces at the Bone Yard. I think I took this photo about 1984 at Patuxent River Naval Air Station, but it is included here (rather than in shows) because of its rarity.
g-21a goose-01
G-21A Goose photographed at Paramount Studios (California) in August 1984.

f-4b-01
Photographed in late 1984, this aircraft is in the markings of an F-4B of the Red Rippers, but an aircraft with the BuNo on this F-4 never went on display. It may have been photographed at the US Naval Academy.

c130-01-wakk
I was stationed in Wakkanai, Japan, from July 1966 to May 1969. One day I was out at the city airport when this C-130A arrived with our mail and other goodies. After a very short landing run, it backed up to the edge of the tarmac near where the three airmen in this photo are standing. I had never seen an airplane back up before, so I took this photo. Of course, I cannot prove it really was backing up. You'll have to take my word for it.
c-54-1971-01
This photo is from 1971. It should be Templehof Central Airport, Berlin, but the aircraft behind the C-54 means that it probably is not.
airlift-01
C-54 on permanent display at Berlin Templehof Airport in 1973 as a tribute to the Berlin Airlift. The aircraft had been procured during the tenure of Airlift pilot Gale Halvorsen as Commander, 7350th Air Base Group in the early 1970s.
