    Nice, although that pic is more than a couple years old. The -3 now resides about a quarter mile south of that location. Just about adjacent the tower, in front of the transportation museum

    Cubman60, Is that a real -51 on the pole or a copy? I can't imagine that a real one would have escaped the collectors.

    The BD5 on the stick is a good thing. That is the best place for one of those.

    Air North ( Fairbanks) had a Beech 18 on a stick at Metro Field. Later moved to Alaska Land's aviation museum.

    Paul Shanahan once told me.. " That airplane has tried to kill me so many times, I won't even walk under it..."

    I seem to recall seeing a photo of a Bristol 170 Freighter on a pole somewhere in Canada.
    Anyone have that?
    For those not familiar with the Bristol, it's a high-wing twin-engine transport with a pair of 1,980 hp radials and a nose that opens up for loading under the high flight deck. And it's a taildragger, of course. I've never seen one in person, but they seem really cool.
    They kinda remind me of the old Sikorsky H-34 Choctaw / Seahorse radial-engine helo.

    Skywagon8a, That is a replica scaled down 51, painted up like Bob Hoovers 51.
    I was just passing thru and stopped to take the picture.

    Saw this on I-90 about the WY SD state line. Just west of Spearfish.
    Looks like maybe a T Bone. Twin Bonanza. Props were even turning in the wind.

    I think the Bristol you are thinking of is the one at Yellowknife http://www.explorenorth.com/nwt/imag...nife-4323.html

    There was a luscombe on a pole in Bowman ND but it didn't last long and blew away. Last I saw it was laying on the ground next to the pole and not in very good shape

    Bristols! Great birds, sliding sleeve engines. They were flying out of WGL back in the day, then Mule creek more recently.

    I think the plane in the first picture is a Breezy. The flight and glide characteristics are very similar.

    ** The picture didn't come through. I was referring to the bulldozer.

    Just up the road at the old (London) Croydon Airport they have a DH.114 Heron on display outside the old terminal building.

    As an aside, we were regular visitors to the Dan-Air Maintenance Base at Lasham, Hampshire and in 1969 there was an ex BAF (British Air Ferries) Bristol Freighter 170 G-AMLP which had just been painted up in Lamb Air livery and re-registered as CF-QWJ. The engineers let us climb all over it and it departed for Canada shortly afterwards. It is listed as having crashed at Rankin Inlet in 1974.
