141735 On display at Yanks Air Museum. This is one of 199 F-11F-1 Tigers built, redesignated F-11A in 1962. Intended as an upgrade for the F9F Cougar, the Tiger bore little design resemblance. It first flew on 30 July 1954 and was ordered for its supersonic performance. The F-11 started carrier operations in 1956 and was withdrawn by 1961, serving with seven USN squadrons. Delivered in 1957, this F-11 served with VF-21 "Mach Busters" in CVG-8, then with VT-23 "Professionals" and VT-26 "Tigers" till 1967. (mehr von 141735)

N53612 On display at Planes of Fame Air Museum. This sailplane was built during World War II to train cargo glider pilots. It had a single wheel instead of a skid, and the fuselage had a steel-tube structure, weighing 475 lb empty. The USAAC placed an order for 75, followed by 75 more. These were given the designation TG-4A, but the flight characteristics were quite different to those of a cargo glider. After the war, these "L-K" gliders with a 23:1 glide ratio were used to promote civilian gliding, and some were modified to achieve higher airspeeds. (mehr von N53612)

NL15HM Inside the hangar at Planes of Fame Air Museum. This airworthy Cadet was delivered as target drone 44-21895 to the USAAF for live gunnery practice. It was radio-controlled, had a retractable landing gear and rudimentary control panel, which allowed it to be flown by a ferry pilot when required. A total of 2,043 were built, of which very few survive. Most were blasted out of the sky by AA gunners. (mehr von NL15HM)

N4250Y BuNo 19075 under restoration at Yanks Air Museum. Visible is the 1,900 hp R-2600-20 Twin Cyclone radial engine, housing for 20mm cannon and the wide wheel track. The first USN squadron to fly the SB2C-1 in anger was VB-17 operating from USS Bunker Hill in 1943. The Helldiver started to replace the Dauntless in 1944, but the aircraft was not as well liked. Nevertheless, the SB2C-3 equipped fleet carriers of TF38 in time for Leyte Gulf. In a coordinated carrier air group attack, Helldivers went first. (mehr von N4250Y)

NL7715C Light falls on "Wee Willy II" in the hangar at Planes of Fame Air Museum. This airworthy Mustang was built at Dallas in 1944. After serving with the ANG, it went into private ownership in 1958. It was converted to a racer in 1964 and set the world speed record for piston engine aircraft of 499.018 mph as RB-51 “Red Baron” in the hands of Steve Hinton on 14 Aug 79, being destroyed in a crash a month later. The fuselage of P-51D 44-73053 was used to restore 44-84961, painted in the colors of the 357th FG. (mehr von NL7715C)

NX4235Y "Mrs. Virginia", the only airworthy P-51A (NA-99) at Planes of Fame Air Museum. Powered by an Allison V-1710-81 V-12, this model was an improvement over the P-51 (NA-91) with its V-1710-39 engine. Armament was changed from the long-barrelled 20mm Hispano to four 0.50 in Browning MGs. A contract was placed for 1,200 of which 310 were built, with 50 going to the RAF before production switched to the Merlin-powered P-51B. Under Col. Phil Cochran, the P-51A served as a fighter in 1ACG in the CBI theatre. (mehr von NX4235Y)
