    Mark, is the F82 a rare item? Seem to remember a few years back someone in the USA was restoring one to fly.

    Thank you. I’ve never seen one other than the one at Lackland and I think Dayton... My uncle was in a unit in the 50s in Alaska that had them.

    Thanks for that link Mark, didn't realise they were THAT rare!! Totally agree with your earlier comment bout those airframes needing to be indoors.

    Pic of the old control tower at Duncan Field, San Antonio, Texas. Duncan was Kelly Field #1 (Kelly Field #2 became Kelly Airfield). Kelly then was absorbed by Lackland AFB next door.

    Duncan Field was the Air Corps training field for American flyers in World War I.
