This F-84F was acquired by the museum in 1980. It is in the markings it wore in 1955 when assigned to the 389th Fighter Bomber Squadron of the 366th Fighter Bomber Wing. Morning sun shining in the hangar making for a difficult exposure setting!

This T-33 spent its entire USAF career in various Air Defense Command (ADC) squadrons. It was used for instrument proficiency flying, and each ADC squadron had a T-33 assigned to it. It is still in the markings of the 13th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, its last unit. The museum acquired the a/c in 1981 from a city park in Vborg, S.D. It was in derelict condition, having been vandalized, with holes in the fuselage and other damage. Another wonderful restoration by the museum.

This TA-4J was retired from Training Squadron 7 at NAS Meridian and flown to the museum in October 1999. The Combat Air Museum has a very nice collection of aircraft and all except the C-121 are inside (when I visited in 2015). However, it does make it a little harder in places to get a good photo as the a/c are close together. The large orange object in the foreground is the left wing tip tank for T-33A 52-9632.

This CH-53 had a varied career, being assigned to the US Navy, US Marines, NASA, the FAA (with civilian reg. N39), and finally back to the US Navy. Due to permanent modifications by NASA it could not be put back in CH-53A configuration hence the NCH-53A designation. On loan to the museum from the National Naval Aviation Museum since 1999.

This is a Korean War combat veteran Panther. It was assigned to VF-51 aboard the USS Valley Forge, seeing combat from 2 January through 5 March 1953. A barrier crash on the ship took it out of action. It was acquired by the museum in derelict condition in 1983 and has been beautifully restored.
