Boneyard 1971

This must have been taken in late 1971. The B-26Ks where phased out in late 69 and came in after mid year in 71. I saw a B-58 get scraped.

Just a guess, B26 = Maurader? B58 = Hustler?

Always thought the 58 was a cool looking aircraft. The 26 was pretty neat too, had a back-yard neighbor that flew them out of England in WWII with the 9th Air Corp I believe.
Been meaning to do some research on that.

Always liked airplanes, built many models as a kid, never learned to fly, but did learn to shoot them down. Kind of fun, but think not as much fun as flying.
Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

Weren't the B-26Ks the A-26 models from WWII, just reclassified?

A friend of mine had a A-26 back in the early 60's. When he sold it he had to top off fuel as part of the deal. Said it was more than he paid for it. I remember a BT-13 here on a grass strip that no one was sure who owned it and anyone could fly it for fuel. They wanted to sell it but due to no paperwork it was cut up on the spot and sold for scrap. Man the good old days.
