  1. I am really thankful once again for these set of images on Thanksgiving day as it passes into Friday or as it becomes “Black Friday” anyway, love the #31 Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy and the B-17. Good show Rob…

  2. 2nd thought that isn’t a B-17. Fuselage is slab sided, a B-17 is round in shape. So I wonder

  3. Several entertaining photos as usual, Rob….but there’s so many questions I have about many of of them (wish there was some sort of “narrative” accompanying them), that I’ll only ask – or comment – on one of them….
    Why do you suppose that derelict F-4 Phantom is sporting a US national insignia with no red stripe on the bar(s)?

  4. One of best collections yet IMHO. I like the F-18/F-14 stare down, some say they kept the wrong one. Me thinks the red stripe on the F-4 has just faded out.

  5. Great set once again Rob.Love the picture of Stan and Ollie in # 31 but look at the shoes !

  6. Hello Rob,
    Thanks for the great collection. My favorite is the (I think) Vindicator on the lift of the USS Wasp. Regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.

  7. Thought 39 was funny with the ladder up to the helicopter.

  8. Image #15 is my grandfather, Robert L Hicks. I am always looking for more info on this photo. I am very interested in any information that you may have about the date and location of this photograph.

    • I’m sorry to say I have nothing for you here. The images were/are collected randomly. In some cases I might recall a more recent image if there’s a query but apart from that I don’t have any specific details I could add. Good luck with your inquiries.
