Beechcraft UC-45J Expeditor

There are many of these still flying, it's amazing to me to think this design came out of the 1930's...

McDonnell F-101 Voodoo

Oldie but goodie, the opening salvo of modern jet fighters. Heavy iron. Simply huge, a cockpit on a giant engine.

Fairchild-Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II

A very curious aircraft. The Air Force "brass" don't like it because today they are all about "air superiority" and flash expensive toys, not ground support for Army grunts.

Douglas C-47 Skytrain

Amazing that there are still some of these in service.

Probably the "jewel" of the older aircraft at McChord Field's "Dead Airplane Park".
