Illinois Gate Guards, Outside Museum Displays and Air Parks

Alton:  Airport  F-4  October 2009


Belleville:  Scott Air Force Base

Scott Field Heritage Air Park  C-9A, C-130, C-140, C-141B, KC-135E  September 2009


All five aircraft currently on display can be see from this location, although only the vertical tail of the KC-135 can be seen behind the C-141 Starlifter.  When the C-21A's are retired from active service one of those will be added also.  This series of photos was taken early in the morning with mist and a very low ceiling.  Behind the aircraft is a taxiway from where the aircraft were brought through the fence to the display site.


The Heritage Park is outside the Air Base so it open to the public at all times.

Milford:  Small Park JB-2 Buzz Bomb   September 2007   The JB-2 (Jet Bomb 2) was the US copy of the German V-1 reversed engineered from parts sent to Wright Field in July of 1944 from England.  1200 were produced by Republic that subcontracted the airframe work to Willys-Overland with the pulse engine being built by Ford.  This display itself has an interesting story as it was stolen, sold to the Commemorative Air Force, and then returned to Milford.  Photos were taken at severe dusk (it was really getting dark) by setting camera to ISO 800. Here is more on the story of this.  Historical Marker Data Base
