The F-105 that used to be at the Pate Air Museum is now at the museum at Tyler. I don't know if the Pate museum has closed but can anyone tell me what happened to the F-86H that used to be on display there? When I last saw the plane, some years ago, it and several of the other planes there were in bad shape; desparately needed repaint.

If there was only one F-86H at Pate Museum of Transportation, then per Joe Baugher's website...it went to Barnes ANGB in Massachusetts.

Do you know when this happened? I presume the Pate Museum has closed?

The F-86H move to Barnes was made just last year (2006). I do not know if the Pate Museum of Transportation has closed. A quick Google Or Dogpile search might offer an answer.
Regards.

I checked the a.net to see if there was a photo of that plane taken since it was moved. None found. Will do some more research and see what I can find regarding it. Thanks for the information. Helped a lot!

Here's some more clues for you that I should have put with my original reply.
North American F-86H Block 10, c/n 203-11, USAF serial 53-1239. Now marked as 52-2030 at Barnes ANGB.
Why do people marked a retired fighter aircraft with another serial number, is beyond me.
Hope this helps. Regards.

Putting wrong markings and serials on display aircraft has been a pet peeve of mine for the longest time. Here's one for you: A former Marine F-4N arrived at Lackland AFB for display and was repainted as an F-4C before being put in position for permanent display. Another is the painting of the one remaining JF-105B (single seater, test model F-105) in camouflage and putting Wild Weasel markings on it. There are numerous others but these stand out in my mind.
