Packed up and ready to be hauled off along with a wing from a Grumman F-9. The Piasecki was on its way to the Grissom air base in Indiana but is not currently listed as a exhibit. The connection is that astronaut Gus Grissom was picked up a Piasecki HUP after his splashdown on the Mercury 2 mission.

One of five Jet Provost T5's on the ramp here. This one was the only one without an American registration on it yet. It became N8089U later. The others were XW302/N166A, XW317/N355A, XW429/N556A and XW437/N80873. The fuselage of Jet Provost T4 XN552/32 was also present.

Not much left of this former FAA DC-3. Last registered as N2299Y, in 1978, but now with only its old FAA registration N47 visible on the fin. Most of her useful parts have probably gone to keep Academy's own fleet flying.

This is the oldest surviving DC-3 type aircraft. She was the sixth DC-3 off the line and was delivered to American Airlines on July 12, 1936 as a Douglas Sleeper Transport (DST). Academy Airlines bought her in 1970 and used her as a freighter for a number of years. Made airworthy by Frank and Glen Moss and flown to Shell Creek Airport in Punta Gorda, FL where it is currently (January 2018) being restored to its original DST configuration.
