Yes I shall do, just refining my improvised working model. Got to try to obtain some luminous fishing line from a specialist fishing supplies shop. Also I wish to get a concise description together to support my improvisation.
At present I am up to my eyes with putting together suitable job applications [having just graduated with a BA (Hons) Accounting], interview preparation and trying to resolve where in UK to relocate to so that I can feed my 'passions' for rowing/sculling and airshows/aircraft while 'chipping' away at my professional accounting exams. In Scotland apart from RAF Leuchars there is no big airshow and it means an expensive journey each time by air to LHR to then connect with the big airshows in UK.
Thanks for the suggestion. I shall post and revert to you with a message when I do.
fah619 I sent an email to your email address.
Interesting thread indeed.
Included is a recently found picture of F-86K poss 55-4866 at Hato Int Airport , Curacau W. Antilles. Yes, from across the pond c. 1982.
The sample included is 1 of 4 F-86Ks found in one of the hangars at the Hato airport in containers that never reached for some reason the Venezuelan coast in c. 1966. The sad part of the story is that all 4 samples were placed to pasture for fire training purposes when no owners were found. Fuselages airframe were 0 Hrs!
If any of you has other pics/info before or after the burning it will be nice to know. Photo G.Hiltermann/milaviation.com. Tks
