The P39 picture didn't turn-out. It was hung the highest in the building, right against the windows and the picture came out all white. Sorry, I hope I didn't get your hopes up.

Heh Jeff - did the one of the Phantom come out? I know there were bucket loads made, but still a favourite!

Thanks in drooling anticipation...

Sorry it took so long to reply to your requests. I didn't forget you all, but I had a family emergency in Ohio and went there for 4 days from Ft Eustis. Here is what I have on the Phantom, and you can see the UH-1 hanging as well. The Huey had no tail number or serial numbers painted on it. However it's history was listed as being an UH-1M that flew with the Puerto Rico NG till 1988. It was originally a UH-1C gunship with 135th Assault Helo Co., in Oct 1967.
The Phantom is an F-4E II model, tail number 67392. It had two soviet MIG kills. The crew was MAJ Luke Lucas and LT Doug Mallory.

Hi Jeff!

Thanks for the great photos ~S~.

Love the way those aircraft are hanging up in the air. Almost like they are in flight.
