first thing that comes to mind of that abandoned/crashed jet is an A4 skyhawk

There were different versions of it. That one I posted was the C I think. That one in the pic might be an early model.


This ones a B.





Heres an A.





There arent many american fighters out there with both a T-tail and triangular inlets.

I actually joined this site cause of this thread.....I've been reading it off and on since 2006, I dont presently own a Jeep but have owned a couple in the past, have built a few of them, and i am also pretty big into 4x4's of all types but anyways i thought i would share some stuff around ohio and florida, the 2 places that i currently live at when im not working in iraq......

Ohio.....

Ohio has always had some good stuff, Moonville Tunnel is a good one though i havent had the pleasure of going, there is alot of old Oil and Gas rigs all over the woods in southeastern ohio, I have seen a few while wheeling down there, the town of Chesire in Gallia county is one you can visit, it was a thriving town til about 7 or 8 years ago when AEP Power had to buy all of it cause it polluted the area so bad it was killing all of the residents, There is alot of fire roads down southeast of Chillicothe (Richland Furnace is the name) that is supposed to have some good mountain trails, there is an old abandoned car or two in a ravine near Paint Creek Beach in Highland county, its about a 5 minute ride from my farm, and its weird cause of where its at, there really wasnt any roads to it even back when it was dumped in the 50's or 60's, on the state woods property behind my farm there is alot of old house foundations and stuff from when it was a normal place, roads, houses, farms, everything, then the state claimed it cause they built the lake and tore mostly everything down, someplaces you can still see where the old roads ran and they are still listed on most maps, down along the river also is a good place to see alot of old boats and barges.....


Florida....

There is stuff all over florida, you just got to find it, around central florida there is alot of old mining equipment cause of all the open pit mines, i know of atleast 1 humoungous drag bucket that was left to rot and if you know where to look you can see it plain as day on RT 17 North of Wauchula, its atleast 50 feet above the tree tops, Cruise around the Green Swamp north of Lakeland some and im sure you will find something out there, over around the space coast is a good place to look cause there has been alot of towns demolished when they built Nasa....


I know ofan old bombing range somewhere in WV that is pretty much devoid of any type of living thing, my buddy said he went down there with his cousin when he was visiting him and there was no sounds, no birds, no bugs......

When out exploring becareful as there are many old nuke test sites. Look up on google site where nuke have been tested. They are all guarded or fenced for good reason, radiation etc. etc. You'd be suprised to see where nukes have been tested.

I can tell you one thing about the F-4, it was gawd-awful LOUD when they'd take off at night over my hootch because they had to use their afterburners since it was considered a combat zone. You could also spot them from miles away because they tended to leave a very black smokey contrail behind them. The F-4 also carried so many bombs and rockets under their wings that they would droop way down from the weight and to see them taxiing like that with their wings flexing up and down under the load that you would wonder how they ever got off the ground.

I was also at Na Nang in 68 and 69 and that first one is an f-4.

I was thumbin' back from Montgomery
with a guitar on my back
When a stranger pulled up beside me in an antique Cadillac.
Well, he was dressed like 1950, half drunk and hallow eyed
Its a long walk to Nashville, would you like a ride, son.
He sat down in the front seat, and turned on the radio
and them sad old songs comin' outta them speakers was solid country gold.
Then I noticed the stranger was ghost white pale when he asked me for a light.
And knew there was somethin' strange about this ride.

Mister can you make folks cry when you play and sang.
Can you pay your dues, can you moan the blues
Can you bend them guitar strangs.
He said Boy, can you make folks feel what you feel inside,
Cause if your big star bound let me warn you its a long hard ride.

Well, he cried just south of Nashville, and he turned that car around.
he said this is where you get off, boy
cause I'm going back to Alabam'.
I stepped out of that ole Cadillac and I said Mister, many thanks.
he said you don't have to call me mister, Mister.
The whole world calls me Hank.

I Actually quoted the wrong source. Yes, those guys on the Tarmac's are F4's. But heavy metal is right...
This one pictured is a A4 Skyhawk in the training livery.
