The jet looks like an L-29. The one in the hangar is hard to make out. T-34?
Radial engines, tricycle gear = T-28
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.
While post #1 was RC, I think most of the RC stuff went here:

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.

misread that! Think you might be right.
glad you guys like the B-58 pic.. a lucky shot with my POS camera.
these were taken a couple years ago.
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.
Or maybe a fire-bomber??
Not in those USAF colors.
IIRC, Paul Mantz converted an A-26 for use as an aerial camera platform. I could be wrong about this, but for some reason it sticks in my head.
Close, but no cigar. It was a B-25. http://www.aerovintage.com/N1203.htm
Thanks for the correction. My memory isn't what it once was.
Sorry - too Luddite to imbed . Can someone assist ?
This brings a tear to me eyes. Well none Kiwis !
