RB-66B off dirt road


Abilene, Texas (TX), US
Found this plane just sitting in an open field near Dyess AFB. Looks like it should be part of the static plane display.

"The RB-66B on display was modified for service in Vietnam having cameras mounted along the bottom of the fuselage and a chaff dispenser replaced the tail gun turret.

This aircraft last served at Bergstrom AFB and is one of only seven still in existence."
