So, now that we've gotten through the winter, any updates on the rescues/scrappings at Chanute?
Castle is expecting the B-58 sometime this summer.

Great news! As to the rest... Looks like everything else is still there like the last time the guy flew his drone around the area.

Does anybody have a complete list of aircraft that are there (or were there)?

I will be there next Friday and Saturday for an indoor model airplane contest at an adjacent hangar. I can certainly take some pics of what is still outside.

Does anybody have current contact information for somebody at the museum? Is there even anybody still there at this point?

Here's what the F-86A and T-33 looked like in February. They were relocated to the Air National Guard display in Fort Wayne.

Thanks Matt! I see they're using the handyman's secret weapon to seal the canopies... :D

The B-58 arrived last Friday, 18-Aug-2017. It currently looks like a crash site surrounded by a fence. I'll have a bucket of pics tomorrow, but moving to a new host has become cumbersome. I'll figure out something.

Can't wait Spectre! Excited for your team. She going at the end by the Vigilante? Maybe across from the B-36 would be a better fit to be close to her CONVAIR sisters.

The loss of free photobucket is a real pain. Think I will go to imageshack which for a few bucks allows third party linking.

Imgur is also a nice option.
