This is a picture of F-16A 80-0513 that was pulled across the road from 309 AMARG in Tucson, AZ to PIMA Air Museum. It is the F-16 that will be transported to MAPS Air Museum and added to our inventory. The target date of the pickup is the first week of March 2015. We have been looking forward to this acquisition for several years and she will be a wonderful addition to MAPS. I would like to thank all of the people who have worked to bring her here.
FSS is an organization created by the vision of Bob Dunham with the mission to “Preserve the Legacy of the F-100.” Bob passed away last Spring and Ken Ramsay has worked with FSS to transfer A full tractor trailer load of material from Texas to Ohio. The items transferred included; J-57 in canister, Tow Target Dart, Refueling Hose w/basket, Ejection Seat, military aviation books , magazines, technical reference books for numerous aircraft platforms plus memorabilia donated by officers and enlisted from around the world. Special thanks to Jerry Leek and Wayne Noall for making the trip to Texas and back.
