    I just looked at the Ontario, OR municipal airport in Google Earth. Just a couple of hangers west of the planes you shot are an F-111, F-86, P-80, and no less than a Mig-21! Quite the collection just sitting out there in the elements. I'm going to make a point of stopping in there and doing a trespassing of my own!

    A Mig ? I should have poked around more. I'll be back. The winters are taking their toll. The leading edge of the F5D is showing it's wood.

    I flew into Ontario a couple of years ago, and spent an hour there talking to a couple of old fellas restoring airplanes. Hell of a collection, they have the only F-111 in civilian hands, however it was a one they used for testing and never actually flew. The Migs really surprised me too. The things you find in the middle of nowhere.

    Flying over that area, I thought what an awesome place to ride a bike.

  7. I wouldn't mind one of each - The Versys looks like a great bike and I've always loved the Catalina :wink:

    Thanks. We construct steel buildings for a living, one of our good clients is a water bomber pilot, that catilina was called the canso in Canada and they were converted to water tankers for fighting forest fires. He just bought one for his own use. I can't wait to go for a ride in it. That's going to be an experience for sure doing the maneuvers for fighting fires..

    These, like the sky lancer around the corner, are all for sale. The F5D is one of only two out there. Neal Armstrong has the other.

    OK not technically an airplane but this does relate to aircraft

    1910 Portable Airship Hanger from Farnborough Airfield (UK) now located in the IQ Business Park that is located within the old boundary fence of the original airfield.

    This F-104 was dedicated to the Nevada County airport by General Chuck Yeager a few years ago. It was pretty cool to be there.[​IMG]
