Dude! Nice! Love the T33.

I see you also have a little bird in your bio. What's the condition of that? Those have always been my favorite

The last pic is awesome!
I wonder if my little woman would let me park an M-113a1 in my living room ??
Or maybe you don't have one of those ?

A little woman. :lol:

I don't have a M-113a1, but I have a friend that just by chance is in need of a set of tracks for one if you have any laying around?

No tracks or APC.
Your friend might be in search for drive and idler sprockets as well.
If his APC has been running with tracks that have worn track section bushings, the sprockets may be worn.
Putting new tracks on worn sprockets and he will need more new tracks before long.
How far are you from the "aircraft salvage yard"?
Might be a left-over T-33 there where you could find wings and a tail section.

Both of those are seriously cool! Glad you saved that history.
I think my dad trained on those when he was a flight surgeon with VMA-224.
Used to be and old Jet in Jacksonville NC on display and as kids we would sit in it and flip all the switches.
I agree you have some seriously cool toys.

There was a flying one in West Memphis, AR for several years. Went stopped paying hangar rent and it was shoved outside in weather for a couple of years. It later auctioned off for around $40K. It had to be disassembled and trailered out. It is expected to be returned to flight with a fair amount of maintenance first.

By the way , this was Sierra Padre's jet. He is not doing good health wise. I would like to send out a prayer for him.
