Yes Aard and I was just showing the A-7 yard.
Here is the B-52 yard.


Gripen:
Do you reckon theyd sell you one?

I need to pay some people a visit...  ;)

AVIATOR:
You know what passed my mind Gripe was the amount of planes available for aviation museums over there.
Virtually anything there, take your pick.
I wonder if they will let museums have them on request?

Gripen:
I dunno

I really need to ring someones door bell with 1000 pound bomb tho.

F-111 C/C:
The majority of those planes there landed 'Code 1' (no defects) and can be returned to active status within 72 hours as wartime spares if things got bad enough and attrition was high on front line aircraft. Most of the fighters are wrapped in white heat shrunken plastic wrap and are in operational condition.
