Each weeks’ admissions seem to be getting better and better, Rob. One of the highlights of the site, IMO.
And who says you can “over-weather” a Spad…? 🙂

Nice pics Rob! Some very usefull to better understand extreme aircraft wethering. Even in the baseball player are fantastic.
Robert Royes said on June 30, 2017
Good stuff all, like the heart of the F-105.
I came across a series of Vietnam photos from a private collection circa 1966. The F-105 was certainly a stand-out image.
Yes…I agree. Like to see MORE of that ‘collection’, Rob.

Great shot of the Staggerwing! The H.P. 42/45 is a nice inclusion as well! (I only knew what it was because I have it in FSX!) “If it fits, it ships!” is good too!

Wow! That picture of the he-111 is fantastic!
And the Vigilant looks like a carrier borne concord
I wonder why the wrecked Foxbat is being handled by a US team?
kloster zero said on July 1, 2017
Yeah I was thinking of whats going on in Syria but youre right the plane doesn’t look damaged it must be iraki .
By the way would you say Foxbat or Foxhound ?
Thks for posting this material
Rob Pollock said on July 1, 2017
Personally I also think Foxbat because of the very high shoulder intakes, but there’s not a huge difference visually between MiG 25s and 31s but I’m no expert on modern Russian aircraft.
Anthony Conway said on June 30, 2017
Yeah thibk I read they burried aircraft in the hope they would survive
Absolutely I remember during Desert Storm one of the main concerns was about Irak’s modern russian jets.
Some managed to flee to Iran and the others were found in the desert half buried and according to Rob’s picture with the wings dismantled.
Not sure a jet engine appreciates that much sand…
Mig 25 Foxbat it is …
The whole story of that particular airplane is very interesting.It was found after a lot of intelligence work by the U.S. and came as a bad surprise for the coalition.
You’ll find the whole story and some more pics here if you’re interested &id=676771&aliaspath=%2FManage%2FArticles%2FTemplate-Main&oref
Thks to Rob and Anthony
Oops ! The first link didn’t work this one seems to be ok
It has the whole story (2 planes were unburried and shiped to the US by a Galaxy

Great pics !!

Thank you for another great round of pictures. Really like the Skyraider with all the oilstaining and other dirt. The comic of the modelshop is somehow familiar LOL.
Dirk Derks said on July 1, 2017
Thanks again, for the collection. My favorite: The Skyraider on the Vietnamese front line. A very weathered plane.
Regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.
