Acquired by Ed Maloney and the Planes of Fame Museum from the California Polytechnic College in San Luis Obispo, this YP-59A had an observer's seat with a custom canopy forward of the cockpit. The jet would later be displayed inside with the observer canopy in place. In the early 90s, the aircraft was stripped of paint and broken down for restoration. Work is still undergoing for restoration to flight status of this oldest surviving Airacomet at the time of uploading.
