Wandering Around the Outside of the Museum

After grabbing a quick bite to eat, we headed back to the museum to get pictures of the planes that are parked outside.  If the museum is able to secure the factory, they will be able to move these planes inside which would probably be good for them.
 An RF-84 Thunderflash.  This is the reconaissance version of the F-84.  You can see some its camera areas.
 Another angle of that plane.
The F-86D Sabre.  This plane was sometimes known as the Dog Sabre.  The nose cone was used to house its radar.  I think the thing below the cockpit was a rocket launcher.
 A shot of that plane from the front.
 A McDonnell RF-101.  This was also used for reconaissance.
 And a shot from the front.
 The An-2 plane.  This was built in significant quantitied by the Soviet Union.  It has a pretty low stall speed and I think it was used in airborne operations at one time.
 Another shot of the RF-101.
 And the An-2.  The An stands for the Antonov design bureau.
 I kind of like this shot with the Michigan flag in the background.
 I will have to admit, it is a pretty cool looking aircraft.
 Another shot of the front.
 The F-86 and RF-84 in unison.
 Another angle of the RF-101.
 I was trying for an unusual angle here.
 This P-80 Shooting Star was missing a significant chunk of its wings, so I took this angle to hide that fact.
 Although you can tell here.
And one more shot of the F-86.
