I recall driving along the interstate highway in Missouri (pretty sure it was Missouri) a few years back and saw a guy who had a Lear Jet parked in his front yard.

Is that a real fuselage? it looks sort of artificial somehow.

It looks like the nose of the Concord http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

A Concorde, yes. Only it should be on the flat end of whatever plane is missing it...

Yep, that's the droop snoot part of a Concord. It's not actually the cockpit but the part of the nose that drops down for takeoff/landing and then raises up in cruise. I see one all the time at the Flight Museum in Seattle, WA. Interesting, it's not like Corcord parts are available at your local convenience store, I wonder if it's part of a simulator or ? All the best, LongHorn

I can beat that, although I don't have a picture.

I found a Grumman Avenger in Kaiser, Arkansas and sat in the cockpit.

I'm a reporter and was going to an Arkansas Economic Development Commission in Jonesboro. There the plane was, sitting in a little airport used mainly by cropdusters. I had time, so I pulled in and asked the guys at the hanger what an Avenger was doing there. They said they were commissed by some guy in Texas to restore it, but then the guy couldn't pay the bill. So they kept the plane.

So I asked, can I go sit in it. They said sure. I took more time than I should and was almost late to the meeting, but it was worth it.

Cool Doug, but this was in a guys back yard in a residential area. I had the wife go back and drive by again so I could get out the camera. Might have to go looking for it, How long ago was it.

I took this photo in Panama City Beach Florida in 1992.

Some guy had this sitting in his yard just like this.

I miss my Van! Sniff! Shag carpet, bed, dingle balls, sunroof. She had it all!
