Walter Soplata Collection
Called "the junk yard" by locals, Mr. Soplata collected aircraft and placed them around his property, hoping some day to restore them. I visited the collection in June or July 1979. A glance at the "visitors' book" revealed names of pilots and authors familiar to me. See http://www.airspacemag.com/history-of-flight/the-soplata-airplane-sanctuary-22000009/?no-ist for more current information.

My notes say this poor thing is an unidentified fuselage stuffed into a B-36 fuselage.
