Did you guys get to keep the engines for this bird? It looks like they were still in the aircraft before you moved it.

you would be surprised how small the aviation world is. When we got our T-28B from the state of alaska in the mid 2000s, after we got it back, we discovered that one of our members had done most of his training in that very plane while it was still with the Navy.ffuries wrote:My father (MSgt USAF Retired, 22 Feb 43-24 Sep 11) spent the majority of his AF career working on F-4's, everytime I see one I think of him. He loved that aircraft and knew it backwards and forwards. The F-4 will always have a special place in my heart, because of him! With all the QF-4 drones flying around here at Tyndall AFB, everytime I see one in the pattern, I wonder if it is one of his old birds.
Don't know how the AF is with giving out parts and pieces of aircraft but there are the remains of 3 drones and an ABDR frame parked at Eglin Aux Field 3 (Duke Field) Florida.

He was buried with his Phantom-Phixer shirt neatly folded and tucked away with him, least it distract from his dress blues.
