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

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)?
Rob Pollock said on November 24, 2017
There is a grey strip within the white rectangle so the red may have been painted out earlier when the machine was written off.
Quite plausible ‘explanation’, Rob…after thinking more about it, it’s also possible that there WAS a a red stripe and it faded out. Oh well…..still another fine collection of pics as always. I really enjoy perusing your briefing every week. Later, my friend.

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.
Just looked again at the F4 fin. There appears to be a red stripe in the vertical set of colours but it’s faded to pink. Not sure why the other would go to grey, but who knows the circumstances.

Different ages of the paint ,maybe? That F-4 belonged to the 107th FIG,136 FIS,N.Y. Air National Guard in the 1980’s.

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

I’ve heard of the lift, but never seen it. Nice.

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

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.
Rob Pollock said on February 1, 2018
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.
