and don't even try to squeeze in the on-base hangar visit if you plan on only a day....
I had a few hours to run over there after an on-base meeting, it was like being teased.
Saw some awfully low flying jets over a grassy part of the airfield, took a minute to realize they were big, kero-burning honest-to-god turbine-powered models.
I was at Wright-Pat for the Doolittle Reunion this year. I was stationed at Lockbourne AFB in Columbus back in the day.
There is one of these standing gate guard over at the old Kelly AFB main gate road. Doesn't look at shiny and clean as this one, though.
My contribution to the thread. Caught this guy flying over a model airplane event I was at this weekend.

P.S. How about model airplane pics? Or is thread for full scale stuff only?
Spotted these at Ft Worth Spinks Airport a few days ago. Oh how I wish I had my good camera with me at the time.....
Can anyone ID them?
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.
